Mosasaurus
Mosasaurus

"Mososaurus looked like giant sharks, but they weren't. They just swam around all day biting people, which is why it's confusing. They lived in shallow inland seas, in shallow inland condominiums. The shallow inland area has nice schools, and very convenient parking.

They mostly ate ammonites, which are like jellyfish mixed with clams, only different. Ammonites are delicious if you don't run out of ketchup. Mososaurs actually prefer hot sauce as their condiment of choice, but they have trouble getting lids off the jars."

This volume is a limited edition, only available through our Kickstarter campaign, not available in stores later. So if you want to get your hands on a copy, pledge today!

About Us:

I love dinosaurs. Have since I was as tiny. So when my friend Mike asked if I would help him put together a dinosaur ABC book, I jumped at the chance. Straight up into the air, 12 feet. You shoulda seen it!

Mike wanted the book to be educational. I wanted it to be silly. I think we found the perfect compromise.

Risks and challenges

The book has already been written and illustrated, with a lot of love and hard work. We're using the Kickstarter platform to raise the funds to actually get the book printed! (and create some cool dino gear)

The challenge is getting you these goodies before the holidays. We have everything lined up as well as we can, with room for an "oops" or two, but you never know! We have a couple other small businesses helping us out with this project, and delays can sometimes happen.

...We also have a toddler to wrangle? Does that count as a challenge?
