One Saturday morning, Mama Grunt sends Little Grunt out to find a dozen eggs. Little Grunt searches high and low, but all he can find is one HUGE egg. CLICK, CRACK, CLUNK, PLOP, the egg hatches and out pops a baby dinosaur. Little Grunt names him George. Soon enough, George grows too big for the Grunt family cave, and poor Little Grunt has to send him away. But when the local volcano erupts, there’s only one dinosaur who can save the day!
Full of fun caveman sounds for reading aloud, Little Grunt and the Big Egg is one of Tomie dePaola’s funniest picture books. Readers of all ages will be excited to see this prehistoric classic back in print.
