Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The loosely brushed illustrations aren't as luridly detailed as they might be, but fans of all things gross and gruesome will still be drawn to this gallery of extinct gourmands. Though most-from Oviraptor, seen crunching a "fat, crispy beetle snatched from the top of dinosaur poop," to Tyrannosaurus Rex chowing down on a bleeding, well-masticated mouthful-are carnivores, vegetarians too are represented, with the likes of Iguanodon: "We browse slowly and quietly, munching as we move. Then comes the noisy part-the more we eat, the more we fart!" The authors add side columns of dino-facts and small black-and-white drawings to each spread, but education definitely takes a back seat to titillation here. Cheap thrills: Buy accordingly. (Picture book/nonfiction. 7-9)

This book disguises itself as a book about dinosaurs, diferrentiating between carnivores, herbivores, etc. But with lines like, "the more we eat, the more we fart" and "treetop salad always makes us poop," I think this book is inappropriate for small children. Especially since illustration of farts and poops are included too. I am very sorry I purchased this and I'd recommend for everyone to skip this book.
