Dinosaur Pet by Neil Sedaka (2012)
From a little egg, out comes the most appealing child-size dino with a wonderful friendly smile. But month by month, he gets bigger and wider and longer and taller. Soon, he’s eating the family out of house and home, the bed is sagging under his weight, and the ceiling is too low. But no matter how giant the dinosaur grows, nothing gets between a boy and his pet. With its witty rhyming lyrics, amusing and gloriously colorful illustrations, kids will be reading, singing, and dancing—and wishing for their own dinosaur pet.
