Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Bestselling pop-up artist David A. Carter invites kids to enjoy some nonsensical fun! Meet six silly dinosaurs in this imaginative pop-up book, and follow through the rhymes for a fabulous time. Tyrannosaurus Red, who calls a toaster his home, is up for hugs but first he needs his scrumptious bugs. Triceratops Pink, who lives in a jar of pickles, is big fan of pickle pie. All of these lovely creatures come to life when you flip the flaps, revealing a glorious pop-up. In true Carter style, the creations are imaginative, colorful, funny, and wonderfully detailed. The dinosaurs all have similar eyes, wide open and super silly. Colors are beautifully bold and complement the wacky text. Dinosaurs are always popular with kids, and this is a true treat for young dino fans everywhere.
Publishers Weekly
Flapdoodle Dinosaurs by David A. Carter is just plain fun. Heavy black text stands out against the slick white background: "Who's inside the loaf of bread?" it asks. Children flip the plump loaf on the opposite page to find the vibrant "Tyrannosaurus Red" who has taken up residence. "Triceratops Pink" lives inside a pickle jar of "Grandma Gill's Pickled Dills." The entire dino line-up pops up on the final spread. ( Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Despite some truly lame rhyming-"It's Spinosaurus Purple/(His friends just call him Murple.)/His favorite drink is a Melon Slurple-"-children will find this slim gallery of pop-eyed, Popsicle-colored dinos irresistible for its large-scale, pop-up effects. Lurking behind such unlikely items as a loaf of bread, an old-style radio, and a jar of pickles, the six creatures seem to explode off the page with each lift of the flap. Two even feature moving parts, so that Diplodocus Blue's babies jump from behind a bush, and, thanks to a pull-tab, Stegosaurus Yellow can wag its pointy tail. Taking an exuberant bow at the end, all leap out from the spectacular final spread to bid viewers good night. As bedtime reading this is far more likely to bring roars than snores, but the effects work smoothly, and the constructions are relatively sturdy for their size.-John Peters, New York Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Dino-licious

    I saw this book for the first time this morning while I was at the library with my 3 year old twins. They flipped for it. I promised to buy it for them as soon as we got home! Their first Carter pop-up book!
