Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The appeal of this somewhat run-of-the-mill story is boosted by the use of a reflective overlay on the tiny prehistoric hero's spines-the same technique that brought bestsellerdom to Pfister's The Rainbow Fish. Readers first meet Dazzle as a sparkly egg that has mysteriously appeared in Mother Maiasaurus's nest. He hatches at the same time as little Maia, and they become fast friends, exploring the valley where they live and dodging its many dangers-including the bloodthirsty Tyrannosaurus Rex. Dazzle vows to rout the evil Dragonsaurus who drove the Maiasauruses from their valley, a quest ensues, and the flashy hero's shiny spines save the day. Pfister's soft pen-and-wash illustrations, rendered in soothing hues of lavender, soft green and blue are pretty, though oddly bland-with the exception, of course, of Dazzle's shiny spines. There is some fact woven into this fantasy, but these wide-eyed dinosaurs have more in common with Barney than with the exhibits of a natural history museum. Ages 5-8. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
A strange egg appears in the nest of a Maiasaurus. When it hatches, the Maiasaurs first think it is a normal baby dinosaur until it unfolds a row of glittering spines along its back. Dubbed Dazzle, the baby dinosaur and his nest-mate, Maia, explore their world and encounter other dinosaurs, friendly and frightening. Dazzle and Maia bravely rout the terrible Dragonsaur from the family's previous cave home, partly with the help of Dazzle's gleaming spines. As with Pfister's previous book, The Rainbow Fish, the illustrations contain iridescent insets in the bright watercolors.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2Two young dinosaur friends, Maia (a Maiasaurus) and Dazzle (who has a row of iridescent, foil-stamped spines on his back), set off to reclaim their ancestral cave from a mean Dragonsaurus that has taken over. They scare him away with an implausible tactic and then, in an anticlimactic ending, lead the other dinosaurs back to the peaceful valley. Blues and blended greens predominate in the watercolor illustrations. The cartoonlike creatures have wide eyes; Maia has long, curly lashes. Dazzle's spines hint at a magical element that is never really delivered. A dazzle-less production.Alexandra Marris, Rochester Public Library, NY

    cute but long

    this book was a good edition to our library of dinosaur books during the my 2 week lesson on dinosaurs. it is a very cute book but a little long for my class which are 2.5 year olds. Would really recommened for older 3's and 4 year olds. you would be able to hold more of a discussion.
