The slumbering Drumheller dinosaur skeletons feel the call of the rising moon and get ready to shake, rattle, and roll their bones.
A little boy dreams of the dinosaur bones in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada, one of the world's richest fields for paleontologists. He pictures them as they "stir their bones from secret cracks/ and assemble themselves--/ fronts, sides and backs." When the jumping, whirling dinosaur skeletons begin banging on drums and dancing up a storm, the pajama-clad neighborhood children join in, cavorting along with the macabre and energetic skeletons as they careen and caper and break-dance. Extremely detailed and realistic full-color acrylic paintings with imaginative perspectives accompany the rhyming text.
