What if that rock under your bed is a dinosaur egg... and it hatches, Edward?" "Not under my bed!" Edward replies to his older brother as they settle down for the night.
Edward's brother warns him that he'll have to love the baby dinosaur, that it will eat like a garbage truck, and that he'll have to change its diapers. Finally, as the full moon rises, Edward's brother says, "A big, crazy moon makes dinosaurs really mad... and then they go looking for little boys who steal dinosaur eggs".
The surprise ending to the big-brother teasing makes a dramatic climax to a highly unusual and comical dinosaur story. Niki Daly's full-color illustrations graphically convey the building tension and the vivid imaginations of two small boys.
