Online PR News – 28-February-2020 – Los Angeles – Publishing company Whimsical World and author Derek Taylor Kent are thrilled to announce the release of their newest picture book, Dinosaur Derby, on March 24, 2020. Described by author Kent as "Jurassic Park meets Fast and the Furious," the story takes us back 70 million years ago, when dinosaurs were in their prime and loved nothing more than racing in crazy vehicles across spectacular terrains. But do the tiny dinos stand a chance against their gigantic counterparts? Not only amusing, this book is also perfect for STEM classes with fun facts about over a dozen dinosaurs mixed in. There are also valuable lessons about persistence and hard works that parents and teachers will appreciate.

Author Derek Taylor Kent has had a fascination with dinosaurs and fossil hunting since he was a child. Despite majoring in Theater and Playwriting at UCLA, he took classes in paleontology and joined his professors on fossil hunts. He and his wife, children's author Sheri Fink, recently traveled to Utah for a fossil dig, where they found dozens of fossilized trilobites that were 500 million years old! Says Kent, "With Dinosaur Derby, my mission continues of inspiring children to fall in love with reading through laughter and adventure, but this time I also hope to inspire a love of science and paleontology as well."

Dinosaur Derby is Derek's 14th book he's released since 2011, many of which have won prestigious book awards and become #1 best-sellers. He and his wife, Sheri Fink, are the founders of Whimsical World, an innovative children's brand with a mission to inspire, delight, and educate children of all ages while planting seeds of self-esteem and high achievement.
