The Monster Who Ate the State
A South Dakota State Historical Society Press publication
The Monster Who Ate the State opens with scientists working in an underground laboratory, where they awaken a creature slumbering beneath the earth. With a large roar, Soozy the dinosaur emerges from the Black Hills looking for food, and she discovers a world far different from the one she left behind. Munching on motorcycles, chasing bison and seeing the sights across South Dakota, Soozy hunts for a new place to call home and sparks panic among the state’s inhabitants.
“Dedicated to the children of South Dakota, Chris Browne’s book is a fun and engaging story that shares important facts and information about our state. It also includes a colorful map that shows Soozy’s journey,” says Nancy Tystad Koupal, director of the South Dakota State Historical Society Press. “It is a wonderful addition to our collection, and Soozy will be an instant South Dakota classic.”
