Jane Yolen's dinosaurs are back! This time they head off to school, where they just might be outrageous—pestering friends, stealing the show-and-tell demonstrations, interrupting lessons, and wiggling precariously on chairs. The author herself narrates, reading her signature questions with clear enunciation and a leisurely pace that allow young listeners to pore over Mark Teague's humorous illustrations. Yolen emphasizes the stomping of the dinosaur feet, roars gently, and speeds up at the moment a lunch is snatched. Sound effects complement the setting with the ring of the school bell and the occasional student voice. The production includes an interview with the author, who shares glimpses into her writing life and the inspiration for her dinosaur stories.
