Dinosaur etiquette is on the table when a little boy invites his prehistoric friends over for dinner. Although the dinosaurs try to use good manners, their sizes present hilarious problems. Written in verse, this story explains when the tail spikes of the Stegosaurus hit the piano in an ''untuned symphony'' he says ''Oh pardon me.'' The Tyrannosaurus ''eats all he takes'' and is ''wonderfully polite.'' Its humor, wise understanding of a childs imagination, rhythm and word-play, teaches children about dinosaurs and good manners in an outsized dinner party to remember!
