Author Info
Syd Hoff
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.
From the Publisher
Editors Note Danny spends an entire day with his newly-found friend--a dinosaur.

So begins Dannys and the dinosaur's wonderful adventure together!But a dinosaur is no ordinary playmate. Even the most everyday activities become extraordinary, like finding a big-enough place to hide a dinosaur in a game of hide-and-seek, and keeping him from knocking over houses with his long tail. But Danny can teach a old dinosaur new tricks. It's the most fun this dinosaur has had in a hundred million years!Originally published as An I Can Read Book over 40 years ago, this classic story is perfect for reading together.Danny's out on the town with a real live dinosaur.
