The Adventures of Grandmasaurus features a quirky Grandma who magically sneezes herself into different dinosaurs while on a field trip with her two grandchildren. When Grandma starts behaving like a dinosaur, the kids quickly learn this will not be a regular field trip!

There is a world of adventure to find while searching and identifying Grandmasaurus.

This intergenerational tale also shows kids know best when it comes to proper behaviour at the museum!

The Adventures of Grandmasaurus is a series of laugh-out-loud picture books starring two gender diverse kids and their funny-business-loving grandma. Each book includes a section of dinosaur fun facts.
