Danny loves dinosaurs! This brand-new edition of Syd Hoff's beloved Danny and the Dinosaur is a special paper-over-board commemorative edition celebrating the 60th anniversary of I Can Read books for beginning readers. The book includes the complete original story and features a foil cover, an anniversary burst, and eight pages of bonus material on the history of I Can Read--including a timeline, origin stories of favorite characters, and never-before-seen early sketches! This beautiful edition is perfect for gift-giving.

When Danny sees a dinosaur at the museum and says, "It would be nice to play with a dinosaur," a voice answers, "And I think it would be nice to play with you." So begins Danny and the Dinosaur's wonderful adventures together.

For Danny and his prehistoric playmate, even the most everyday activities become extraordinary, like finding a big-enough place to hide a dinosaur in a game of hide-and-seek. Kids will delight in Syd Hoff's charming, funny illustrations as they read about how Danny teaches a very old dinosaur some new tricks.

An older book that retains its charm. What kid hasn't fantasized about having a pet dinosaur? Danny is one lucky dude.
