Eventually, unbeknownst to them, they end up inside the mouth of the very dinosaur they fear the most! With humor, engaging text, and bright, colorful artwork, this title is the perfect introduction into the world of Gigantosaurus.
A must-have introduction to the animated series, featuring the four main characters and Gigantosaurus himself.

Gigantosaurus: The Lost Egg

By Cyber Group Studios

ISBN: 9781536209877 | November 2019 | Ages 3 - 7 yrs | 34 pages

Also available in hardcover
Gigantosaurus: The Lost Egg
When Rocky, Tiny, Mazu, and Bill find a lost egg, they're not sure what to do with it. Play ball? Probably not. The gang, with Rocky in the lead, sets out to find the egg's family. Turns out looking after such a delicate thing isn't easy, and asking all the residents of the Cretaceous jungle for advice is complicated. Some want to help care for the egg – but others want to eat it! When Gigantosaurus stomps onto the scene, everyone gets a big surprise – but it's not as surprising as what eventually hatches from the little lost egg!

Careful with that egg! Who knows what might hatch from it. . . .

Cassandra's Review-  Dinosaurs and so much fun trying to figure out where the egg belongs. Plus the added stickers are going to be a treat for the kids. 

Gigantosaurus: Don’t Cave In
By Cyber Group Studios

ISBN: 9781536209884| November 2019 | Ages 3 - 7 yrs | 34 pages

Also available in hardcover
Gigantosaurus: Don’t Cave In
Don't go into the cave! A Shriekosaurus, the dinosaur that Rocky, Tiny, Mazu, and Bill are afraid of (even though no one has actually seen it) lives there. That's good advice, but with Gigantosaurus in pursuit, they have to take cover somewhere. Once inside the cave, the four friends might as well explore. There are scary shadows and a very loud roar. How will they find their way home? The adventurous dinos, and readers, are in for a real treat when the secrets of the cave are revealed.

Who's afraid of a dark and scary cave?

Cassandra's Review- Friendship and teamwork is the perfect message for little readers to enjoy, plus they might not be super scared of the dark if you have a child that might be.  The added stickers are a bonus and this book is perfect for a holiday gift.

Peg + Cat: Up a Tree
By Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson

ISBN: 9781536209709 | November 2019 | Ages 4 - 6 yrs | 32 pages

Also available in hardcover
Peg + Cat: Peg Up a Tree: A Level 1 Reader
Peg has a BIG PROBLEM. She is up in a tree with her yo-yo and can’t get down! Luckily, Cat is down below and eager to help. He finds two long poles and some short pieces of wood and ties them all together. But when his makeshift ladder sways and falls, Peg has to pull Cat up, and now they have an even bigger problem. Can their friend Ramone make the ladder’s vertical sides go up and down and the horizontal steps go straight across so they can get down safely? Could Peg’s yo-yo skills come in handy after all?

What goes up must come down — somehow — as Peg gets stuck high in a tree and Cat and Ramone try to come to the rescue.

Cassandra's Review-  I like that this is a great way to teach kids who are younger how to read in an easier way.  It's shorter story of a cat and friendship with beautiful illustrations.

I received a complimentary copies.
