What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

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.
