Fall 2020 Kids Indie Next List


“An adorable, delightful, and magnificent picture book! A great read-aloud about reading combining dinosaurs and books. Love the nods to great literature in the illustrations (Jurassic Mansfield Park?!?!). This is a book for kids and adults alike.”
— Lauren Brown, The Story Shop, Monroe, GA

Description


A Kids' Indie Next List pick! From author-illustrator Anya Glazer comes a humorous picture book for dinosaur fans and word lovers of all ages.

Thesaurus is an ordinary dinosaur. A very ordinary dinosaur . . . who just happens to love words. And the other dinos know that’s just who he is. But behind his verbose and fancy language, Thesaurus has also been keeping something absolutely, very, extremely top secret.

But as his lies begin to stack up, someone begins to notice. And if the other dinos discover what Thesaurus is hiding, they won’t think he’s such a normal dinosaur after all. 

About the Author


Anya Glazer is a children’s book author and illustrator based in London. She studied history and French at Oxford University, then decided to pursue her original career plan (conceived age six) of drawing pictures and telling stories.

Anya loves working in pencil, which is how most of her illustrations begin, and she can often be found doodling dinosaurs as well as other animals not yet extinct.

Praise For…


“Salutary messages about the pleasures of words and reading (and reading aloud), the art is festooned with appropriate or playfully altered classics.”
Kirkus Reviews

"In this sweet tale of an anthropomorphized dinosaur, Thesaurus lives up to his name and then some. A charming picture book for young readers, especially dinosaur lovers, about the joy of sharing a good book."
