Here Comes Destructosaurus!
Written by Aaron Reynolds
Illustrated by Jeremy Tankard
Chronicle Books
April 2014
32 pages

The baby-faced monster named Destructosaurus is on a rampage, upending and destroying the entire city. And someone who sounds an awful lot like his mom is chastising him up one street and down the next. When he finds his teddy bear somewhere near the train station everything is all better and it’s hugs all around. But who is going to clean up the monstrous mess he made?

Jeremy Tankard’s manga style illustrations depict the red hot rage of the Destructosaurus temper tantrum with big faces, bold lines, and bright colors. Preschoolers may or may not recognize their own behavior in the raging monster but parents will definitely hear the sound of their own voices echo back at them as they read aloud. Here Comes Destructosaurus! is a hilarious parody of a day in the life of a preschooler.
