Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"Dinosaurs are all wiped out,/ A long way back in history./ No one knows quite how or why,/ Now this book solves the mystery." This comic epic about the Great Dinosaurs Underpants War delights young readers, especially boys.

From the Publisher
"Fans of Aliens Love Underpants will revel in this companion volume's dotty humor and pell-mell action."—Publishers Weekly

"Perfect for reading aloud, this rollicking tale of prehistoric misadventure will have children four and older giggling with glee."—BookLoons

School Library Journal
PreS—Freedman and Cort offer another homage to underpants. Cartoons in bright colors and patterns pep up the rhymed tale that explains the demise of dinosaurs. According to Freedman, "When T. rex saw man's undies,/He roared with deafening rants./I don't want to eat you up./I want your underpants." All dinosaurs follow the obsessive fad, escalating to a manic dino tug-of-war that wipes out every order, saving mankind. Despite the skimpy plot, preschoolers will giggle as itchy or tight briefs annoy Stegosaurus or Diplodocus, while theft victim cavemen shyly cover up with huge leaves or the few remaining pairs of underwear.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
Kirkus Reviews
The author and illustrator of Aliens Love Underpants (2007) go to the well again, describing in stumbling verse and colorful but unexceptional art how the dinos wiped themselves out squabbling over their prehistoric panties. Seeing cavemen modeling newly invented fur boxer shorts, the envious dinosaurs steal the concept, but they discover certain design flaws: "The pants from Woolly Mammoth coats / Made Stegosaurus itchy. / Diplodocus was really mad. / His briefs were way too pinchy!" Irritation quickly escalates into fury, and the ensuing autogenocide both leaves the cavemen (there are no women in evidence) relieved and leads to a closing "Don't forget briefs saved Mankind. / They're not just underwear!" Children may find Cort's cartoon pictures of big, grumpy-looking dinosaurs sporting undies loud with polka-dots and other patterns briefly (so to speak) amusing. (Picture book. 6-8)

    Not currently supported on the Nook Color despite saying it is

    This book does not currently work on the Nook Color due to content problems that the author/publisher needs to fix. It has been reported to them by Customer Servie, but will not play until the issue is resolved by them.

    The Worst book!!

    I read to all my grandchildren. It's always a special time for us. but this book is the worst book I ever read and the kids agree..I cannot believe I paid that much money for it. There was no thought put into this book at all in regard to what the kids would get out of it. I will never buy from this author again.

    Silly and Fun

    I loved loved loved this book! I purchased it through the Scholastic book catalog at my daughter's school. My children love the silly story and laugh at the humorous pictures.

    Dinosaurs Love Underpants is a feast for both the eyes and the ears. Bright and colorful illustrations are bountiful in this quick, smartly rhyming story. Children and adults alike will be charmed by the unlikely demise of the dinos.

    This book will provide endless entertainment for you and your child. Full of fun and goofy antics, I couldn't help but fall in love with the tale of how underpants saved mankind!

    I couldn't tell you if this book was good or not, as it would no

    I couldn't tell you if this book was good or not, as it would not load onto my nook tablet. had to contact customer service multiple times to get it to even load onto my nook, and then when it did finally load, it wouldn't open, and instead just showed an error message. seriously!! customer service says that it's an issue with my tablet only, but as i have read multiple reviews saying it will not load on the nook tablet or nook color, i find that hard to believe. I am especially irritated because customer service originally refused to refund my money for the book. there is no way i am paying for something i can't access. i have loved my nook other than this issue-- hope i don't have many more, as i am less than impressed with how issues are handled.

    Read to me does not work

    It is a really cute story, however the read to me option is not working on my IPad. Other books work fine. I have contacted Barnes and Noble and have been waiting more than a week for a reply.

    No opinion

    We didn't actually receive this book and were told it was no longer available. Such a disappointment as it sounded like a story our young grandchildren would really love.

    Will not work on Nook Tablet - issue with publisher

    I bought this book on sale thinking my kids would love it. However, when I tried to read it, it said content not supported. I contacted B&N support and they said it was an issue with the publisher and they were working on it. However, I've not seen anything updated to make note of the known problem on the website to warn users of potential problem before purchasing. Buy at your own risk!!!
