Leilong's Too Long!

By Julia Liu
Illustrated by Bei Lynn

In this expressively illustrated picture book, an overeager dinosaur school bus causes problems for the city’s transportation system—so the children find a place where oversize is perfect.

Every morning, Leilong the school bus shuttles through the city, picking up children as he goes. But a brontosaurus longer than a tennis court causes big problems in the busy streets. The school decides he can’t be the bus anymore. The children must find a way to help their long friend fit in. Loose and vibrant illustrations bring to life the charming world of Leilong, where brontosauruses share the city with ordinary vehicles, and sliding out the bedroom window down the neck of the dinosaur school bus is an everyday activity.

  • A friendly bumbling dinosaur, follow on from Leilong the Library Bus
