Lenore Jennewein and Daniel Jennewein

Watermark Books & Café is pleased to welcome back Lenore Jennewein and Daniel Jennewein for a reading and signing of Chick-o-Saurus Rex on Saturday, July 27 at 11:00 a.m.


A bullied little chicken discovers his inner strength along with some surprising dinosaur ancestry in this farmyard tale with huge heart.

Little Chick just wants to belong, but the bullies of the barnyard—Little Donkey, Little Pig, and Little Sheep—won’t let him play in their tree house because he is a chicken, and chickens are not strong and brave. Little Chick sees their point: What have chickens done besides invent the chicken dance and cross the road? But when his father shows Little Chick the family photo album, he learns something HUGE: He is related to the gigantic and ferocious Tyrannosaurus rex!

Armed with this new knowledge, Little Chick returns to the tree house just in time to rescue the bullies from a scary wolf—and prove that strength and bravery have nothing to do with size.


Lenore Jennewein is the author of the picture book Chick-o-Saurus Rex and, writing as Lenore Appelhans, the author of the teen novel Level 2. Daniel Jennewein is the illustrator of Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten and Teach Your Buffalo to Play Drums. They live in Frankfurt, Germany, with their three cats.
