By David G. Derrick, Jr.
In Derrick’s newest book, he takes us to the Permian period, 299-250 million years ago, and gives us a different and quite hilarious version of survival of the fittest. The story begins with a gliding lizard trying to avoid being eaten by many predators. When he is finally caught by Dimetrodon, our lizard friend bargains that it is much better to play with your food than to eat it! Read on as the fun ensues while gliding lizard suggests many different games to convince Dimetrodon to play instead of eat him.
The artwork in this story is vivid, detailed and absolutely delightful. Be sure to look carefully as you read along – most of the pages have other interesting animals in the background, making the illustrations even more fun. I hope you and your little one enjoy this book as much as I did. Happy Reading!
