And not just any pterodactyl: this one wards off bullies, loves to read stories, and makes an excellent science display. Hilarious illustrations capture the madcap imagination of the determined hero and his creative pleas to his teacher.

Dinosaur-loving kids will read this one again and again.

Lois Grambling, author

Lois Grambling grew up in Union, New Jersey. Her first vivid childhood memory is of getting her very first library card. She remembers not being able to write, but the town librarian was kind enough to say she could "read the name that was printed on the application."

With that wonderful new card in her hand, Lois found a whole new world opened up to her. Every Saturday was spent in the children's section in the library where she would load up on armfuls of books to take home with her--a habit she has not yet kicked.

The kid in Can I Have a Stegosaurus, Mom? Can I? Please? (1995) now imagines taking a pterodactyl to school. He nags his teacher for permission. His flying friend could deal with the playground bully, shelter the school band from the rain, and keep everyone warm and cozy in the classroom. The class could have a kid-friendly dinosaur exhibit that would like being touched, and kids could fly on its back instead of taking the school bus. The colorful pastel illustrations bring the fantasy of the kind monster into the schoolyard and the classroom, and dinosaur fans will enjoy the wild scenarios that give the kid wings, power, and fun. –Hazel Rochman
