What Happened to
Patrick's Dinosaurs


by Carol Carrick
illustrated by Donald Carrick

As Patrick and his brother are raking leaves, Patrick provides a fantastical explanation for what happened to the dinosaurs--essentially, they used to live in harmony with people but got frustrated when the humans didn't want to learn (preferring only recess and lunch) so they built a spaceship and flew away.

In response to Patrick's fantastical tale, Hank, his older brother, then provides scientific explanations. Full of brightly colored, imaginative illustrations and lots of good dino-details.

"For sharing and laughing over together, or for independent reading, this superlative partnership of text and illustration will satisfy even the most passionate dinosaur buffs." (School Library Journal)
