Additional Notes

From The Publisher*From the parents who brought us the web sensation "Dinovember" comes photographic proof of what toys do at night.

Since Toy Story (and maybe since the very first toys!) children and their parents have wondered what it would be like if toys came to life. Refe and Susan Tuma take this wonder several steps further in WHAT THE DINOSAURS DID LAST NIGHT.

Every November, writer and social media master Refe Tuma and his wife, Susan, work into the night to bring their four children scenes from the secret lives of their toys -- specifically the nighttime antics of their plastic dinosaurs. The dinosaurs wreck bathrooms, destroy vases, rock out, encounter terrifying hot irons, even do the dishes with hilarious, magical results. Each scene is photographed in meticulous detail, letting viewers joyfully suspend disbelief and think to themselves -- just LOOK what the dinosaurs did last night!
Review Quote*"Filled with photographic proof of the dinosaurs' escapades and the parents' heroic creativity, it's a mood-boosting page-turner for anyone who has ever posed a plastic toy."-Wendy Donahue, Chicago Tribune
Review Quote*"Hilarious, magical, and simply fabulous."-Amy Joyce, The Washington Post
Review Quote*"One couple's silly plan to thrill their kids went viral. A peek at their new book makes it obvious why."-Dawn Raffel, Reader's Digest
Review Quote*What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night "begins with a rather moving six-page introduction.... It's surprising how much merry mileage the Tumas get out of their mischievous, gremlin-like troublemakers.... Kids will get a real jolt out of this, though it's adults who will appreciate it most."-Daniel Kraus, Booklist
Biographical NoteRefe and Susan Tuma live in Kansas City with their four children and a herd of plastic dinosaurs. The Tumas began cataloguing their dinosaurs' antics in 2012, igniting the imaginations of hundreds of thousands of children--young and old--across the world.
