There's a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor

Written by Wade Bradford

Illustrated by Kevin Hawkes

Candlewick Press

ISBN:  978-0763686659

Will Mr. Snore ever get some shut-eye at the busy Sharemore Hotel?  From author and playwright Wade Bradford and award winning illustrator Kevin Hawkes comes a laugh-out loud tale full of visual humor. 


"Hawkes' playful illustrations match perfectly with the absurdity of Bradford's delightful romp.  Instant storytime classic!"

Indie Next List Fall 2018

"Acrylic and ink pictures by Hawkes amplify the tale's humor with such playful flourishes as snakes wrapped around the art-eco hotel's pillars, a rodent perched on a chandelier, and Mr. snore and the dinosaur's matching pince-nex and bunny slippers." 

Publisher's Weekly

Insider's Scoop

Something about Wade Bradford's sense of humor really struck a chord with me.    A hotel for animals?

Giraffes disappearing through the ceiling!

A maze of hamster tunnels creating a hotel inside of a hotel! 

I loved the idea and wish I could spend a night

at the Sharemore Hotel myself!
