Gorgonzola: A Very Stinkysaurus
by Margie Palatini and Jim Bowers

You've heard of the Tyrannosaurus rex, the Barosaurus, the Diplodocus, the Fukuiraptor, and the Protoceratops.
Now meet Gorgonzola, A Very Stinkysaurus who had trouble making friends.
Was that because he scared them away?
No, they ran from him because he smelled so terribly bad!
Finally a brave little birdie found the courage to tell Gorgonzola the truth.
Do you think he learned to floss?
Do you think he learned to brush his teeth and use mouthwash?
Do you think he learned to wash in his stinky places?

Clever dialog and hysterical illustrations will make this a hygiene book that will become a favorite of all ages!
