Archie, The Ugly Dinosaur
Children's thin, medium softcover book, 'Archie the Ugly Dinosaur', by M. Christina Butler. Book cover scuffs and bottom corner of book has a light bend marks and tiny pin size dents.
~Here is the story of four dinosaurs: Triceratops, Diplodocus, Stegosaurus -- and Archie. Archie is smaller than his friends, and he's clumsy too. The other dinosaurs tease him, and sometimes when they're out running and playing, they leave him behind. One day, Archie begins growing little spikes all over his body. His friends laugh, and Archie's feelings are hurt. He runs into the forest -- where the ferocious Rexes lurk. Soon, Archie's friends grow worried and begin to search for him. When they call out, "Archie... Are You There?" the answer they receive is as big a surprise to them as it will be to the kids who turn the pages of this wonderful picture book.
