Friday Fiction: Boy with the Dinosaur Hands

The Boy with Dinosaur Hands: Nine Tales of the Real and Unreal

Submitter: There are so many things going on with this book…a kid with dinosaur hands, horrible writing, crazy chapter titles, and the illustrations!  The worst part is that we have TWO copies of it in our Library!  Apparently the previous Librarian enjoyed it so much she ordered a second copy. From a middle school library.

Holly: There are definitely kids who will go for something like this. I’m not sure it warrants multiple copies unless it is a huge hit in your library for some reason! Maybe it’s grooming the next generation for weird sci-fi like this?
