Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The young boy in this book is certain that a pet Tyrannosaurus Rex is just the thing to cure all of life's little problems. This extremely persistent youngster hounds his father mercilessly, conjuring up the many charms of having such a pet, such as for protection, for show and tell, to rescue Grandma's cat, and to use as a beach umbrella. When his father finally says "No," our endearing protagonist starts pestering him for a pet pterodactyl. What's a beleaguered parent to do? The pictures capture an imagination run wild in a young child. The text offers a convincing rendition of children when they desperately try to get their way. 2000, BridgeWater Books/Troll, Ages 3 to 7, $15.95. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati
