A library-loving picture book in which an enthusiastic dinosaur absorbed in storytime threatens to flatten the library—until the children decide to take the books outdoors

The children are late for storytime at the library. Ever helpful, Lei the enthusiastic dinosaur can get them there one time! Lei's small head is the only part of him that fits so he must listen through the window. But he gets so excited by the story, he starts to shake the building. Lei's love of stories risks destroying the library until the children decide to take the books outdoors. This library-loving picture book reminds us how it feels to be transported by story. And what first seems a problem for Lei the dinosaur becomes a triumph.

Industry Reviews

"The what-next is magical. The ending is genius. The book is a heart-moving CELEBRATION of why stories matter so very much, and why some of us can't stop reading them, listening to them, or writing them."

-- Paula Green, Poetry Box

"Text and illustrations are perfectly matched here. Via Wang's smooth translation from Chinese, Liu employs simple, direct third-person narration, enhanced by intriguing dialogue and winning characters. Lynn's intricate cartoons provide scope and setting and much of the fun as well as thought-provoking details."

-- Kirkus Reviews

"A fun way to look at big or small, half full or half empty scenarios and thinking outside the box. Problem solving at its best!"

-- Collected #27 SLANZA

"Leilong is a cheerful, bright-green standout among bustling cityscapes and quiet interiors with dark line art and crayon-like smears of rose and dusty blue."

-- Foreword Reviews
