Bei Lynn’s adorable illustrations will make everyone want their very own Leilong – surely the most fun way to get around a city." --BookTrust Leilong is a very large, very special green dinosaur—and he makes the perfect city schools. Or does he? He causes traffic jams, get tangled in telephone line, knocks down traffic lights, and creates potholes with his big stomping feet. If the principal fires Leilong from schoolbus duty, how will the thirty-ton Dino find a new job? Bei Lynn’s wonderful, sketchy watercolor and pencil illustrations recall old classics, as does the pleasantly preposterous story of a dinosaur who just wants to be helpful.
