Dinosaur vs. Bedtime
The plot of Dinosaur vs. Bedtime centers around a young dinosaur that takes on many challenges, including adults, brushing his teeth, taking a bath, and eating spaghetti. The dinosaur takes on all the challenges put before, defeating them all by roaring at them, until he comes up against his final (or "biggest") challenge, bedtime. In the end "bedtime wins" and the dinosaur goes to sleep. The dinosaur is used in the story to represent a stubborn child who does not want to go to bed. Dinosaur vs. Bedtime was illustrated by Shea, who utilized mixed media including crayon, paint and photography.
