A playdate between intrepid kitties and cautious dinosaurs doesn't go quite as planned in this hilarious story of friendship and compromise!

Life on Dinosaur Island is so boring. Who wants to watch stuff sink in tar pits all day? So the dinosaurs are escaping to Kitty Island to play with their new kitty friends, even though the level-headed narrator warns them that it will end in cat-astrophe. After all, the kitties are fearless and feisty! And these dinos? Well, cuddles are more their speed. Now these tiny kitties and hulking dinos need to find some common ground before their playdate and friendship go extinct.
"Young children will enjoy the mishaps and high jinks and perhaps take into consideration the feelings of others when playing. Children will enjoy interpreting the illustrations and bring their own takes to what is unfolding . . . Charming illustrations partner well with a simple story of playtime." —School Library Journal
