Summary

From The Bad Seed and The Good Egg creators, Jory John and Pete Oswald, comes a story about a dinosaur who loves to ROAR.

William the dinosaur likes to roar.

At the park?"ROAR."

At the bus stop?"ROAR!"

At the farm? You bet. ROARRR!

William never lets the chance to roar pass him by, even if others find it rather bothersome.

That's until William gets a sore throat and the doctor warns him not to roar for a WHOLE week. But can this overexcited, boisterous, giant lizard not do what dinosaurs are meant to do?!

In his humorous and insightful style, Jory John creates an epic story about unapologetically and happily being yourself, no matter the cost. Another side-splitting combination of John's brilliant text and Pete Oswald's expressive and lively illustrations, That's What Dinosaurs Do is a read-aloud that young readers will roar for again and again.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Carping critics may claim that dinos do lots of things, but William a toothy, towering, turquoise T. rex in Oswald's lightly brushed digital watercolors sticks to just one: he ROARS. Unfortunately, after a fun weekend of scaring people waiting at a bus stop, children on a playground, and sheep in a meadow, he wakes up with a sore throat and, on doctor's orders, has to stay silent for a whole, endless week. This delights his erstwhile victims but leaves him Down. Distraught. Depressed. Drained. The doctor's suggestion to take it easy barely lasts past the first sighting of an unwary mail carrier, and he is soon back to terrifying anyone he can sneak up on. Is he at least a little bit sorry? Nope! Because that's what dinosaurs do. Considering William's impressive dentifrice, his frazzled human neighbors should be grateful he doesn't have more predatory habits as in, for instance, Bridget Heos and T. L. McBeth's Stegothesaurus (2018). Not much for modeling socially acceptable behavior, but with all the big, hand-lettered roaring, a sure storytime favorite.--John Peters Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Scaring people by roaring loudly at them is bad, right? Right. But William the T. rex does it anyway. In vignettes and panels that feature a faded, beachy vibe, Oswald portrays the fun William has scaring others. At a bus stop, riders are waiting politely in front of a bush when William bursts forth: "ROAR!" The bus riders jump, shocked, but the dino is clearly delighted. After a weekend of frightening folks renders William hoarse, the doctor orders no roaring. (Oswald pictures the doc peering down William's toothy maw like Doctor De Soto; there's a bicycle, a fishing rod, and more back there.) As William's throat heals, a bandage around his snout, people smile and wave. No matter. When his convalescence is over, William goes right back to roaring, for "That's what dinosaurs do!" This divertissement by the creators of The Bad Seed gleefully flouts picture book convention. Not only does William show no remorse; his misbehavior, John seems to argue, is part of his very nature. Since the protagonist's cheerful id triumphs over his civilized superego, the story won't do for readalouds where moral rectitude is required. But if laughter is wanted, William's your dinosaur.
