Overview

The Lazardos are playing baseball in their backyard when Dinosaur Bob's exceptional skills are spotted by some members of the Pimlico Pirates, the worst team in history. The next thing you know Bob's been recruited, and the big green rookie is playing right and left field, rounding the bases in three strides and leading the hometown team to victory, their first ever! Newsweek listed William Joyce as one of the 100 people to watch in the new millenium and The New York Times calls Dinosaur Bob the most adorable of dinos. This board book, the third in a series based on episodes from the original book, includes new artwork and new toddler-friendly text.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
This newly adapted board book, from the longer Dinosaur Bob and His Adventures with the Family Lazardo, is for young fans who may love dinosaurs as much as baseball. When the Lazardo's pet dinosaur joins a local team he sends a ball streaking out of the park to win the game. Bob's team, his family and the whole town celebrate and sing "The Ballad of Dinosaur Bob." Your family, too, can become part of the party because the lyrics are recapped in the book and can be sung to the familiar tune of "Auld Lang Syne."
