Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Starting with Tyrannosaurus rex, a dozen different dinosaurs introduce themselves in funny, rhyming verses. The subjects range from the tiny Microraptor ("I'm as little as a chicken,/but please don't be too hasty!/Although I may be chicken-sized,/I'm nowhere near as tasty!") to the gigantic Supersaurus ("My neck is so long I can stretch it/to nibble the tops of tall trees./I like to look down at my friends on the ground/who barely reach up to my knees!"). Phonetic guides appear beneath each species name to help with pronunciation. The cartoon illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and enhance the humor of the text. The pages are filled with striking hues, and the creatures pop out from the richly colored scenes to delight the eye. Each dinosaur wears an enchantingly childlike smile or scowl. Most of the paintings fill two pages, while the text dances gracefully across the spreads. This book is a great choice for reading aloud or sharing one-on-one, and fluent readers will love giggling their way through it alone.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A dozen familiar dinosaurs introduce themselves in verse in this uninspired, if colorful, new animal gallery from the authors of Commotion in the Ocean (2000). Smiling, usually toothily, and sporting an array of diamonds, lightning bolts, spikes and tiger stripes, the garishly colored dinosaurs make an eye-catching show, but their comments seldom measure up to their appearance: "I'm a swimming reptile, / I dive down in the sea. / And when I spot a yummy squid, / I eat it up with glee!" ("Ichthyosaurus") Next to the likes of Kevin Crotty's Dinosongs (2000), illustrated by Kurt Vargo, or Jack Prelutsky's classic Tyrannosaurus Was A Beast (1988), illustrated by Arnold Lobel, there's not much here to roar about. (Picture book/poetry. 7-9)
