There's a Dodo on the Wedding Cake

author: Wade Bradford
illustrator: Kevin Hawkes

For his return visit to the wacky Sharemore Hotel, Mr. Snore will be playing his violin at a fancy wedding. As he waits for his cue to join the ceremony, he admires the wedding cake . . . and notices that he’s not alone in ogling that tower of frothy perfection. Is that a dodo, eating one of the frosting roses? As more and more creatures enter the scene—including two beavers, a boa constrictor, and a bunch of bats—it’s hard to tell who’s a guest and who's a pest. But Mr. Snore, rushing the cake trolley from room to room, is going to do his heroic best to save that prize from sure disaster. From author and playwright Wade Bradford and award-winning illustrator Kevin Hawkes comes a madcap encore to There’s a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor, starring the ever-proper Mr. Snore.

In a raucous sequel to There’s a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor, Mr. Snore is back at the hotel to play his violin at a wedding—where his valiant efforts to protect the elaborate cake go hilariously awry.
