The last surviving dinosaur: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris introduced the kid listeners to the tiniest, most dangerous dinosaur on the planet: The TyrantoCrankaTsuris.

All humans descended from this tiny dinosaur - and this follow-up audiobook for adults examines how “crankiness” is part of our nature.

Using good humor throughout, Steven Joseph observes that we typically do not hesitate to pour out our CrankaTsuris all over our spouses, kids, parents, and sibling - and then there can be a CrankaTsuris retaliation. Before you know it, you are in the middle of a CrankaTsuris food fight.

We’re all cranky at times, but it’s imperative we find a more effective way to be cranky while still making the world a happier place. In this audiobook, learn how to:

  • Create space for both yours and your family’s crankiness
  • Utilize a fun “team” approach to crankiness
  • Take steps to avoid being too cranky
  • Improve communication with friends and family
  • Handle cranky dinosaurs in your life (including children)
  • Effectively diagnose and treat the “Common CrankaTsuris”

When it comes to crankiness, the infection rate in a given room is likely close to 100 percent. When trying to manage that crankiness - as well as your own - the ultimate answer will always be love.
