Brontorina

By James Howe
Illustrated by Randy Cecil

From the sure-footed duo of James Howe and Randy Cecil comes a hugely endearing new character -- in a humorous, heart-warming tale about holding on to your dreams. (Ages 4-8)

Brontorina has a dream. She wants to dance. But Brontorina is rather large -- too large to fit in Madame Lucille’s dance studio. Brontorina does not have the right shoes, and everyone knows you can’t dance without the proper footwear. Still, Brontorina knows, deep in her heart, that she is meant to be a ballerina. James Howe introduces a lovable dinosaur whose size is outmatched only by her determination, and whose talent is outmatched only by her charm. Accompanied by Randy Cecil’s beguiling illustrations, here is an irresistible story that proves that no problem is too big when the heart and imagination know no bounds.

  • A new larger-than-life character from celebrated author James Howe
  • Beguiling story about determination and kindness
