Mitchell Is Moving

Illustrated by Jose Aruego and Ariane Dewey

After sixty years in the same old place, Mitchell the dinosaur decides it's time to move. His neighbor, Margo, dreams up ways of stopping him. But nothing can hold Mitchell back. Two weeks later, Mitchell's in a new home, but he's not as happy as he thought he'd be. Can he be missing his best friend?
