A Dinosaur Tail that is Udderly Unbelievable

If a freak milk accident that sparks life to a half-cow, half-stegosaurus isn’t strange enough, imagine how strange it’s going to get when Trip Stanley’s class drinks the milk! "How to Milk a DinoCow" is written by NC author, Ian Sands.
Oct. 13, 2011 - PRLog -- “How to Milk a DinoCow will be released on December 10th, 2011 by Peak City Publishing. Readers, aged six to ten, will quickly fall in love with the baby hatched from an ostrich egg who grows to a full size DinoCow.  Not sure what to feed the mooing animal, Jules and Trip feed him lemons, creating the deliciously addictive milk their classmates begin to demand.  Believing they are drinking creamery milk, the students begin to look to Trip and Jules to provide it, or be deleted.

Ian Sands, wrote his first children’s chapter book based on the idea that if scientists, who first believed dinosaurs were giant reptiles, could change their mind and decide they were birds, then what if he changed the idea and determined dinosaurs were really  mammals with fur and udders?  

Sands chose a former student, Abby Davies, to illustrate the book.  He said, “There is something wonderful about seeing someone else bring the characters to life” and adds that he made an excellent choice.   Abby  has captured the characters and their emotions consistently throughout the book, not to mention bringing to life the essence of what a DinoCow would look like!  Abby is currently attending Savannah College for Arts and Design in Savannah, GA.  

“How to Milk a DinoCow” will be released December 10, 2011.  The publisher and the Halle Cultural Arts Center, located on Salem Street in downtown Apex, NC will be co-hosting the launch event which is open to the public.  The event will take place from 3-5PM.  Mr. Sands will read an excerpt from the book while participants partake in “special” milk and cookies.
