Marlo and the Dinosaurs

illustrated by Christopher Browne


About the Book

Inspired by the author’s rescue pit bull, this follow up to Marlo is another stunning oversized picture book with a playful seek-and-find element for readers to pore over. Perfect for fans of Aaron Becker's Caldecott Honor-winning book Journey and parents who loved Jurassic Park.

When Marlo wakes up from his afternoon nap, he spots something curious. . . .

His investigation brings him into a lush jungle, where a whole new world full of colorful dinosaurs of every size awaits him.

With clever seek-and-find elements on each spread, this book is a feast of imagination and visual delights.
