Book Description

If a freak milk accident that sparks life to a half cow, half stegosaurus isn’t weird enough, imagine how strange it’s going to get when Trip Stanley’s class starts drinking the milk! Trip Stanley’s best friend Jules spills a glass of creamery milk onto his uncle’s dinosaur machine and activates the contraption. A creature hatches and grows rapidly into a black and white spotted stegosaurus with and an udder. A stegcowsaurus. When the last bottle of creamery milk that Jules had planned to bring to school for show and tell is knocked over, Trip decides to milk the stegcowsaurus. Everyone in class is given a taste and the reaction causes spots and horns. One classmate even grows a tail. It’s up to Trip to figure out how to de-dinosaur his classmates and keep from getting kicked out of school, all while preventing his mom from discovering the stegcowsaurus in his bedroom. With angry classmates and an upset teacher in his living room, Trip finds a solution in his own advice, when life give you lemons you make lemonade. Realizing the correlation between milk and lemons, Trip reverses the beverages and changes his classmates back into classmates and his dinocow into a cow.

I got this book at a local book signing and got it signed by the author. He was really great to meet in person, so i see why the books so good. It's very creative and has a great story for younger kids! A must buy for your children's nighttime stories! And remember, stay away from the milk!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read for adults as well April 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked this book up for free as a kindle book. My wife and I (late 40's) both enjoyed it. If you have every been in grade school, you are not to old for this one. Lots of funny bits in a short book. The story moves along quickly. Makes a good lunch time read, or turn on the kindle text to speech and enjoy it with a loved one.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to Milk a Dinocow December 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book to my five year old and three year old over three nights at bedtime. Both enjoyed it greatly and thought it was very funny. In the beginning I had to stop several times to explain some things to my three year old (which is expected, this book is not geared for one so young), but by the end he was really loving it and was asking me to read it! The illustrations were cute and plot was creative and amusing. At the end, both of my kids enjoyed speculating about what other creatures could be created using the machine in the story and different combinations of things. They went to bed giggling with minds full of imaginative ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Bits for Young & Young at Heart December 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This cheeky tale/tail has imaginative characters, drama, dilemma, disappointment, resolution and contentment - in other words, it is a near biographical story of the life of any independent youngster. With a wink to the adult readers, the story teller keeps everyone entertained. I love it and so do my children - now teenagers who still ask what Freckles (our dog) would think if Dinocows were real.

4.0 out of 5 stars My kids loved it! September 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premise of the book is a little strange, but my son is a typical boy and thought it was hilarious. It's great for a kid about eight that's into warped humor.

How to Milk a Dinocow made my daughter laugh at the antics of the boy in this story. We found the storyline unique and will written. There are so many stories about dinosaurs that might catch your interest but this book has your interest from start to finish. My daughter could not wait to see what would happen think of milking a dinosaurs was more than funny and the result were even funnier ..everyone who has a child should read this story. It s funny both for the adult and the child.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want a Dinocow! September 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know how my 5 dogs would react to a dinocow, but I would love to have one. The story is very good and entertaining. I plan to read it to my grandson. The end of the book seems to leave the story open for more books either with the dinocow or his human friends.
