First introduced in 1958 in "Danny and the Dinosaur", and the recent stars of"Happy Birthday, Danny and the Dinosaur!", the popular pair is back in a bookthat is sure to please beginning readers and happy campers alike.
Syd Hoff attended the National Academy of Design in New York City as a fine arts student, but was not encouraged by his instructors due to the humorous quality of his work. Later, as a cartoonist, he was a regular contributor to "The New Yorker" and other magazines. As an author, Hoff is known for his books for beginning readers. His first work, DANNY AND THE DINOSAUR, evolved from a series of drawings he created for his daughter when she was ill.
"Hoff's simple prose and cartoon illustrations make a delightful book for beginning readers, with enough difficult words...to keep the story interesting, and enough clues in the illustrations to ensure new readers success."
From the Publisher
Syd Hoff's classic characters, Danny and his pet dinosaur, get the pleasure of going to sleep-over camp together. There are hikes to go on, boats to row, and races to run. And having an enormous dinosaur around will make these activities even more fun! Color illustrations accompany the beginning reader text.
