Sierra (lavender0lilacs) | 19 comments I'm posting this for my mom.

She had a book she loved about Melly, a fashionable dinosaur. The dinosaur may have lived in Paris. She read the book as a child, and it was an old library book when she got it. (Probably read around the early 1970s.) The drawings were very simple.

Any info is much appreciated.

Sierra (lavender0lilacs) | 19 comments Talked to my mom, got some updated info.

The name was either Millie or Milly. She was possibly pink. It was likely printed in the 50s. She wore a hat.

Sierra (lavender0lilacs) | 19 comments Lobstergirl, the drawing style is similar, but that's not it. Thanks though :)

Tab (tabbrown) | 5014 comments What kind of dino was it? A t-rex, a stegosaurus, triceratops, etc?

Were there any humans in the story? What sorts of things did Millie do in the book?


message 7: by Sierra (new)

Sierra (lavender0lilacs) | 19 comments Brachiosaurus, and yes there may have been people. She was trying to do, or find something and in the end she put on her hat and realize she loved fashion.

Don't give up. You can bump your thread every 30-60 days or so to get new members looking at it.
