What's that

A busy crew of dinosaurs!
Engines fire, swing that hammer,
Cover your ears—it's quite a clamor!
But keep those eyes open wide,
Because the alphabet hides inside.
Find each letter—wait, there's more!
Big trucks, cool tools, and surprises galore!

Cool hard-hat dinosaurs jam-pack this rhyming alphabet picture book by New York Times bestselling author Nate Evans and Stephanie Gwyn Brown, brought to life by Christopher Santoro's hilarious and energetic illustrations. Kids will love looking for the hidden letters on each page and finding the visual jokes that lead to a supersilly surprise ending. Construction work may be tough, but even dinos love a little monkey business!

Dinosaurs and heavy-duty vehicles share the spotlight in this alphabetical tour of a construction site, but unlike Chris Gall's Dinotrux, this story casts the dinosaurs as a busy team of workers using the backhoes and bulldozers.
