Anything is possible and nothing's as it seems... In a town by the seaside, Marianne is often seen digging for buried treasure on the beach. One day, she finds the most wonderful treasure of all — a dinosaur skeleton! Carefully, she excavates it, lining up her fossils and naming the creature Bony.
That night, Marianne makes a wish upon a star that her dinosaur will come to life. She wishes it with all her heart — and it comes true. Together, Marianne's adventures with her new friend are limited only by their imagination.This evocative, beautifully illustrated picture book celebrates one girl's limitless imagination, which will take you on a magical journey far beyond the page.
"Bony, a smiling, green-scaled apatosaurus look-alike, swims and flies with Marianne into magical lands where they meet fanciful beings and discover a 'magical moonlit island' filled with diverse children and their fantasy dinos.... The ending finds the story back at the beach, the residents now unconcerned, and the kids digging for dinosaurs — and holding fast to their nighttime secrets." — Kirkus Reviews
