The Dinosaurs Did It

Shawn was a good kid...that is, until the dinosaurs moved in! From broken vases and windows to ruined carpets and pies, Shawn's mom thinks he's the one who's responsible. After all, it's not easy to believe dinosaurs are to blame!

The Dinosaurs Did It is a children's book inspired by my brother, Sean. As a very young child, Sean would blame buffalo for the little mishap in his life. "The buffalo did it," he would tell my mom in order to get out of trouble. Of course the buffalo (and dinosaurs) weren't real...or were they?
