What to say about this book: OMGSQUEESOFULLOFTEHCUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alright, now that I have that out of my system, it really is the most adorable little book. Tiny orange dinosaur goes on an underground adventure with a groundhog and a coyote who is going to rescue his or her cub from a giant spider. There are no words, but the details in the drawings are amazing and convey a host of emotions and thoughts.
