Theo TheSaurus is back in a brand-new pet-friendly adventure with big words and even bigger fun! This series is Fancy Nancy for dinosaur lovers.

Theo longs for a pet of his very own. So when he finds a baby sabretooth tiger, it feels like the perfect match. But when Theo's big vocabulary makes it difficult to train his new pet, Theo must find a different way to communicate with Fang if he wants to hang onto his furry companion. 
A sweet and funny book filled with bright art, a lovable dino character, and a full glossary of big words at the end, readers have tons of fun--and learn some new words along the way! It's FANCY NANCY for the dino-loving set!

"The playful art...[is] sure to garner giggles, and the candy-colored animals bring pops of color to the predominantly green-and-brown Mesozoic backdrop. While Theo’s adventure relies on a dash of absurdity, his understanding of Fang has obvious parallel lessons to real pet households." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
