Cayden’s comments:

“In this book when they looked out the window they saw a sleigh being pulled by eight big dinosaurs instead of reindeer. There wasn’t Santa in it either; it was another dinosaur, a T-Rex (my favorite kind). The dinosaurs had mean sounding names like Smasher and Biter. The T-Rex eats the guy in the house, but Santa is in the T-Rex’s belly too! This was a cool book because I like dinosaurs. My favorite part is when the boy tries to zap them. My favorite dinosaur was the one on the cover, the T-Rex. I hope they don’t come to our house though!”

Parent’s comments:

We really enjoyed this spin on the classic Christmas tale. The illustrations were a lot of fun to look at. I am sure that my children will request to read “Dinosaur’s Night Before Christmas” many, many times throughout the holiday season. This book will be a huge hit for any child who loves dinosaurs!
