There’s a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor

Wade Bradford, illustrated by Kevin Hawkes

(Walker Books)

Mr Snore checks into The Sharemore Hotel. The sooner he can get to his room the better, for Mr Snore is very- YAWN- sleepy. Yet, there’s something preventing Mr Snore’s sweet dreams. What could it be? At every floor there’s something disturbing him! While the first floor is noisy, the second is crowded. Thereafter, the third floor is damp. The porter seems determined to prevent Mr Snore’s sleep also! What is going on?
 ‘There’s a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor‘ is an intriguing, inventive and very funny picture book. While we, the reader, are in on the joke, poor Mr Snore is the victim. Will he ever earn his much needed good night’s sleep? The clever picture telling by Kevin Hawkes of Weslandia is the icing on the cake. Bookwagon recommends this title to readers with a keen sense of humour!
