The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris

An Award-Winning Kids’ Non-Fiction

Many people grew up believing that dinosaurs became extinct when the Dark Ages arrived, but that’s only partly true. Yes, the Dark Ages did come, but one cranky dinosaur survived and became mankind’s oldest ancestor: the TyrantoCrankaTsuris. In this playful, imaginative tale that draws inspiration from Jewish culture, author Steven Joseph reminds children and adults alike that we all have a little TyrantoCrankaTsuris in us and encourages readers to balance their woes with the positive things in life in pursuit of a happier world.

Survival of the Crankiest!

Stemming from the author’s personal experiences of how he learned to manage his own crankiness as a child, this tale aims to provide a character that readers can learn from and use as an example to manage their own set of emotions. If you need an original and far-out fable to read to any young cranks in your home, this could be the book for you. –The Children’s Book Review 

The Last Surviving Dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris is a charming picture book that teaches both children and their parents about natural history, life lessons, neighborhoods, and family units, with a fun and instructive cultural twist. –Self-Publishing Review

 

Author Steven Joseph hands to his face looking totally surprised.
