Dinosaurs in Space: Out of this World
by Pranas T. Naujokaitis
ISBN: 978-1-60905-543-1

A Junior Library Guild selection

Dinosaurs, comics, and outer space—together at last!

Here’s a two-books-in-one package for fans of cartoons, dinosaurs, and hilarity. This new, paperback Balloon Toons format features two comics-style readers that School Library Journal states will appeal to “emerging readers and younger fans of Dav Pilkey’s ‘Captain Underpants’ series.”

“Dinosaurs in Space” introduces the ETDs (Extra-Terrestrial Dinos) and explains how they became galactic.

“Crash Landing” brings six ETDs back to present-day earth and shows their bumbling efforts to repair their spaceship. In all these dino-stories, Pranas Naujokaitis brings wit and warmth to this critically acclaimed comics/early reader series.

Rotten smells, bad advice, and comical creatures: what could be better?

Spend a day in a dubious outer space “medical” practice in “A Day in the Office of Doctor Bugspit.” Dr. Bugspit’s oddball patients, staff, and cases offer the perfect prescription for curing boredom.

In “Adopt a Glurb,” readers will find tips, information, and zany advice on raising a glurb, a funny little monster who yells really loud, eats ten times his body weight daily, and loves unrolling toilet paper.
