How Do Dinosaurs Say I'm Mad?, written by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Mark Teague, Blue Sky Press, 2013.
I would buy any book in this series for Mark Teague's illustrations alone. They are surprisingly funny for being so accurately rendered.
I would also buy any book in this series for Jane Yolen's writing alone. Her writing rises above the level of "books in rhyme" to the level of poetry. And this charmingly poetic book is an excellent reminder for dinosaurs, big or small, on how to keep one's temper and remain gracious.
