Overview

This is a unique offering of a book and CD recorded by Neil Sedaka, telling a charming story with print and music. From a little egg, out comes the most appealing child-size dino with a wonderful friendly smile. But month by month, he gets bigger and wider and longer and taller. Soon, he’s eating the family out of house and home, the bed is sagging under his weight, and the ceiling is too low. But no matter how giant the dinosaur grows, nothing gets between a boy and his pet. With its witty rhyming lyrics, amusing and gloriously colorful illustrations, and a catchy, irresistible tune on the included CD, kids will be reading, singing, and dancing—and wishing for their own dinosaur pet.

About the Author

The history of rock ’n’ roll would be incomplete without the innumerable contributions of Neil Sedaka.

Sedaka began studying music at the age of nine, and later catapulted to stardom with hits such as "Oh Carol," "Calendar Girl," "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen," and especially "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do." His songs "Bad Blood" and "Laughter in the Rain" both reached #1 on the music charts.

He has written over a thousand songs, received a Grammy Award for Record of the Year for "Love Will Keep Us Together," has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In his fifty plus year career, Sedaka has sold over sixty million records. But he does not rest on these laurels: he continues to write, record, and perform worldwide.

Sedaka has been married for forty-seven years to his wife, Leba, and they have two children and three grandchildren. Marc Sedaka is a successful comedy writer for both film and TV. His credits include New Line Cinema's Overnight Delivery starring Reese Witherspoon and Paul Rudd, CBS's King of Queens, and NBC's Inside Schwartz. The proud father of three young children, Marc spends most of his time playing with dolls, building puzzles, and, of course, introducing a whole new generation of music lovers to his father’s wonderful songs.

Love the book but not the service. Barnes and Noble screwed up my order and it took a lovely girl named Jessica to straighten everything out by canceling my online order and reordering the book for me. I got it in 2 days thanks to Jessica. I am not sure I will ever use the online service again. It took over 2 months to get my book and it should have only taken a few days. If I hadn't let Jessica reorder the book for me, I would still be waiting for it to arrive with excuses coming every few days from the website.

My little great grandson loved this book, he wouldn't put it down. I had to read it over and over to him. He loves to dance so we had to do that also, Neil Sedaka has always been my idol.

I purchased DINOSAUR PET for my 5 1/2 year old granddaughter. She loved it and sings the Tooth Fairy song all the time.

Dinosaur Pet is a real hit with my Grandson's preschool. Fun interactive book. The songs are fun and easy to learn. Who doesn't love listening to the voice of Neil Sedaka.

I got this for my 3 year old grandson. He loves it being read with the music and he also likes to dance to it. He knows almost all the words now.
