Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
It's time to outflank prehistory and create your own dinosaur or, to be more specific, any one of a thousand imaginary primordial creatures. By flipping the head, body, and tail pages of this cool board book, you can change evolutionary history—or at least make it much, much more funny than it ever was before. Interactive excitement.
School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Moments of entertainment may be provided by this oversize, cut-page gallery that invites children to mix and match the heads, bodies, and tails of 10 dinosaurs. Brief descriptive comments at the base of each flap offer further opportunity for hilarity: the "Diplo-Thyo-Ryx," for instance, announces that "My neck is twenty feet long," "I live in the ocean," and "My long, bony tail is covered in colorful feathers." Printed on heavy card stock, Ball's painted portraits are big and bright enough to draw even younger children—but the appeal will be strictly ephemeral and next to the oldie but goodie Dinosaur Mix-Up (Starlight Editions, 1990), the number of possible choices here is downright paltry.—John Peters, formerly at New York Public Library
