Adoptar un Dinosaurio

José Carlos Andrés (Author) Ana Sanfelippo (Illustrator)


Let's just say no reader will be able to resist. Kirkus Star Review

"I want a dog! I want a cat!"

"No animals at home!"

"I want a dinosaur!"

"... If you find one you can have it."

And find it she does. Ali wanted a pet, but her parents didn't expect that pet to be A DINOSAUR!

A charming and humorous tale that stirs kids' imagination as they read aloud. Come along with Kimo, the sweetest dinosaur of them all, and you won't stop laughing!

After reading this tale, you'll want a pet dinosaur too!

About the Author

José Carlos Andrés is a famous author in Spain. He is a professional clown and children's theater actor.
Illustrator and typographer. She likes vibrant colors and natural landscapes. She illustrates books and magazines and teaches typography at UBA, as well as running illustration workshops. She has participated in the Little People, Big Dreams series with Frances Lincoln Children's Books. Adopting a Dinosaur is her first illustration project for NubeOcho.


The writing is snappy, especially when the dialogue is rendered in large hand-drawn letters ("WOAH, WOAH, WOOAAAHHH THAT'S A DINOSAUR!"), and the art throughout is consistently delightful. Kimo, of course, turns out to be the most adorable-est, cuddliest dino, and when he's covered with licks by his adoring saltasaurus family while a child on a ladder pats one of the parents...let's just say no reader will be able to resist. A Spanish-language edition, Adoptar un dinosaurio, proves just as charming. Humorous without a trace of snark, this Spanish import hatches just right. - Kirkus Reviews
Families will enjoy reading all the animal names and making all the animal sounds. The illustrations are whimsical and full of fresh, light-filled colors. - Youth Services Book Review
What I really liked about this book is that it is so relatable. If there are any parents that have had a child that has begged and pleaded for a pet, this would be their book. - Youth Services Book Review
Its entertaining artwork and feel-good family vibes will surprise and delight audiences as baby saltasaurus makes himself at home in the suburbs.
