About the book:
It's Tuesday morning in the library.
"ROAR!"
Tess is out of control.
"Time out!" Mommy shouts."No beastie behavior in the library."
Tess snarls.
She snorts.
"Just ten quiet minutes, Little Beastie," says Mommy. "And then
 I'll be back for you."
BAM!
Books tumble, topple, flop on the floor.
"Ooops," Tess says, "The books . . ."
"ROAR!"
She gasps and grins.
She grips a claw.
And then...

“A lively introduction to the multitude of stories and topics found in a library with an emphasis on the importance of book care and library etiquette, this will especially appeal to active youngsters. Good for home, classroom and library use.”—Kirkus

“Buzzeo and Yoshikawa make it obvious how children are supposed to behave in a library while giving sneak peeks at some of the different sections and exciting possibilities that they might encounter on a visit. Mixed-media illustrations have loud colors, quick movements, and costume changes to match the section of the library. Although this book is lively at the start, it does have a calm ending consisting of a hug and a whisper. Offer this one to children who enjoy Jane Yolen's "How Do Dinosaurs…" series (Scholastic).”—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada, School Library Journal

“This picture book with its roars, snarls, yells, and other sound words celebrates a child’s imagination as she spends a little “quiet time” at the library. Children who have a hard time keeping still during story time are such to appreciate this action-packed tale.”—Marya Jansen-Gruber, Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Reviews http://lookingglassreview.com/books/no-t-rex-in-the-libraryshapeimage_5_link_0

When Tess misbehaves at the library, Mommy puts her in the time out chair, promising to return for her in 10 minutes. But Mommy doesn't count on Tess tipping over her chair, or the chair tipping over the book cart, or the dinosaur book falling open.  And what else can Tess do when she sees that dinosaur claw reaching up from the page?  Join Tess on a library romp on board the back of a T. Rex.  She proves, beyond a doubt, that you can find ANY kind of adventure in your library books!
