About the Author

Refe and Susan Tuma began photographing their dinosaurs’ adventures in 2012, creating Dinovember—the month when plastic dinosaurs come to life—and igniting the imagination of children young and old across the word. They live in Illinois with their four children, Boris the dog, and, of course, the dinosaurs. They are the authors of the bestselling and award-winning What the Dinosaurs Did picture-book series.

* "The Tumas have much to answer for, as this album will join the many like scenes they have posted online as a record of their annual family "Dinovember" celebrations which are already, no surprise at all, spawning fans and similar outbreaks of disorder in other locales. The authors may well have created a monster with this deliciously chaotic notion."—Kirkus, starred review
