Description

See below for English description.

Si jamais un dinosaure trainait dans ton salon et que tu ne savais pas quoi faire. tu pourrais t'en servir comme ouvre-boîte! Il ferait un excellent casse-noisette aussi! Un dinosaure pourrait servir de grand parapluie, de cerf-volant ou même d'oreiller. Il pourrait aussi servir de système antivol au cas où des intrus tenteraient d'entrer chez vous.

Les rôles absurdes que l'on prête aux dinosaures de cet album feront rire les lecteurs aux éclats en plus de stimuler leur imagination et leur montrer comment faire pour que leur dinosaure ne les quittent jamais.

If you happen to have a dinosaur, lying around your living room, and you don't know what to do with it .why don't you use it as a can opener? It will make a terrific nutcracker too! There are oodles of uses for a dinosaur - from a fine umbrella to an excellent kite and a dandy pillow, not to mention a reliable burglar alarm and the perfect excuse to forget your homework. This delightfully absurd exploration of the domestic uses of dinosaurs - and the things dinos just aren't good for at all - is guaranteed to tickle funny bones and spark imaginations. If you read carefully, you'll learn how to make your dinosaur last a very long time.

Original title: If You Happen to Have a Dinosaur
