Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Bateman recaptures the rhymed, silly fun of her Farm Flu (Albert Whitman, 2001) with a pair of green dinosaur siblings who track clues to Dad's arrival home, then lovingly ambush him in his armchair. Readers easily team up for the search based on hints like root-beer stains and an upstairs thud. The author, however, takes literary license to accommodate meter by inventing a word (newspaperdactyl) that is neither explained nor depicted in Huang's large-figured cartoons on double-page spreads. Still, the nonsense refrain "Hunka-cha, hunka-cha, rooba" will make for interactive storytimes. Select this as fluff for dinosaur fans and team it with Diane Hearn's Dad's Dinosaur Day (S & S, 1993) for another tale of a father hiding.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
This rhyme-along item features two young, roly-poly, soft-toned dinosaurs stalking their father as he leaves a trail of clothes, crumbs, and other detritus after returning home from work. "We'd better beware as we follow his tracks. / You can't be too careful, no time to relax! / He'll never escape as we shout out our chorus: / We're hunting the marvelous Daddyosaurus!" The second half is a refrain that appears every other stanza, while in the intervening stanzas Bateman inserts a little chugging wordplay-"Hunka-cha, hunka-cha, rooba"-which is fun to say even if it wreaks havoc on the rhyme scheme. There is little doubt that this verse will go choral as soon as the refrains are established. Dinosaur touches abound in the pictures-three-toed boots, trim on a vase, patterns in a towel, the objects of a mobile-otherwise, this could be any typical household. A downside here-nagging at first, and then quite conspicuous-is that the verse is too long for its own good. C'mon, find him already, your yodeling charges may demand, even while they merrily hoot the refrains. (Picture book. 3-6)
