Read an Excerpt

Stegosaurus was a creature uncontentious and benign,
and the row of armored plates upon its back
failed to guard its tender belly or protect its flimsy spine—
Stegosaurus often wound up as a snack.

Stegosaurus blundered calmly through the prehistoric scene,
never causing any other creature woe,
its brain was somewhat smaller than the average nectarine—
Stegosaurus vanished many years ago.
