Summary: A bespectacled dinosaur comes across a rock reading “Dinosaurs Do Not Scratch”. He shares his new knowledge with other prehistoric friends who come along, stopping them from scratching an itchy back, a bee sting, and the place where a tag rubs on the back of the neck. The original dinosaur claims it is tough not to scratch, and proves his own fortitude when the others tickle him with a feather and wrap him in a woolly sweater. Finally, the turtle lying in front of the rock slowly moves away, revealing the word “Alone” at the bottom of the message. Relieved, the whole crew goes for it, scratching every itch they can find on each other. Elephant and Piggie enjoy the story, commenting at the end that “A good story scratches an itch.” 64 pages; ages 4-8.
Pros: Elephant & Piggie + funny dinosaurs = a winning combination.
Cons: It was a tough book to read while suffering from poison ivy.
