Shea (New Socks) makes a hilarious commentator as his hero, a small red dinosaur, elevates everyday encounters into a series of matches worthy of the WWF. "Dinosaur versus... a bowl of spaghetti!" announces Shea and, with a trio of bold typographic roars (and two chomps), the bowl is vanquished. "Dinosaur wins again!" declares Shea, as Dinosaur coolly acknowledges his triumph. Again and again, Dinosaur proves unbeatable-the foes he defeats include a pile of leaves, a big slide and "talking grown-ups"-but the title hints at his Achilles heel. Dinosaur may not resemble anything found in a paleontology textbook, but he's a terrific surrogate. Incorporating paper, paint, photo collage and quick strokes of crayon, Shea's freewheeling compositions convey both a beguiling spontaneity and a preschooler's sense of invincibility. Kids will be only too happy to capitulate to this irresistible package. Ages 2-6. (Sept.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
