Episode Summary

Charlie's Dinosaur & Here Come the Aliens
"Charlie's Dinosaur" Everyone at the library is excited by the Touch a Dinosaur program. As Lionel and Leona speculate as to just what sort of dinosaur it could be, Theo announces that he'd like to read a book. He reads Charlie's Dinosaur, an original story by Sarah Durkee (one of the show's writers), in which a boy presents a bird as his dinosaur project.

      • Theo: Charlie's Dinosaur, by Sarah Durkee.
        Lionel: Oh, she's good.
        Leona: Oh yeah, I like Sarah Durkee.
