My Grandpa is a Dinosaur

Author(s): Richard Fairgray

NZ Picture Books

This little girl has been watching her grandpa for a very long time, and she is almost absolutely certain that he is a dinosaur. So why is it that nobody believes her? Why can't anyone else see what she sees? He roars (And no, it's not just a snore.) He has green skin (And no, he's not from outer space.) He even has a tail (And no, he's not a horse ) Determined to get to the bottom of this mystery, the little girl goes straight to the source. It's time to ask Grandpa once and for all: is he a dinosaur?

Just like Gorillas in Our Midst, this book is all silliness and fun. Comic artist Richard Fairgray's illustrations are filled with wonderful, quirky details for kids to discover with each read. Kids will love that they can see that Grandpa is a dinosaur when nobody else can. And, of course, a story like this can't end without a surprising twist

Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers--picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft; stories told with LEGO bricks; books that teach lessons about tolerance, patience, and the environment, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Richard Fairgray is a NZ writer and illustrator who works on comics, picture books and screenplays. He has been publishing work since he was seven years old, and has more than 200 titles to his name. A former teacher and stand-up comedian, and a self-confessed workaholic, Richard's deep-seated fear that he may be a fictional character only serves to drive him harder. He insists that if he doesn't get enough done he'll have to come back as a ghost to finish off.
