Romeosaurus and Juliet Rex come from two very different families. Romeosaurus comes from a family of herbivores. Juliet Rex? Carnivores. Nobody is in too much danger until one evening the two dinosaurs meet at a Dinosaur Ball, where Juliet Rex’s family serves a delicious meal of . . . Romeosaurus’s aunt Gladys! This won’t do! Both families are up in arms! And these two young dinos won’t be able to be true friends until both families learn to tame their roaring appetites. But is it possible? With her knee-slapping take on Shakespeare, Mo O’Hara creates a delightfully funny spin on a classic tale for young audiences who love to learn and laugh, and beloved illustrator Andrew Joyner animates every scene with wit and flair.
Mo O’Hara is an American writer, actor, storyteller, and author of the bestselling My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish series. Mo got her start as an actress, traveling across the UK. During her travels, she was told that her stories were good enough to be written down—so she wrote them! Since then, she has hit the New York Times bestseller list with her middle grade series and has published three picture books: More People to Love Me, My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish: The Fintastic Fish-Sitter, and Romeosaurus and Juliet Rex. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, she now lives in London. You can visit her at www.moohara.co.uk.
