Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Buddy was born in a Pteranodon nest, but he knew that he was different from his sisters and brothers Tiny, Shiny and Don. He did not look anything like them and Mrs. Pteranodon told him that she has found an abandoned egg and added it to her nest. Buddy was very happy with his family, but he did wonder what species he was. On the Dino Train, he checked with a Giganotosaurus and could see that they were not really related. The family stopped in Rexville for lunch and who did they run into—a Tyrannosaurus. Well when a small dinosaur came running out of the bushes, Buddy knew that he had found some relatives—now he knew what species he was. The kids play a game and readers learn a bit about the difference between carnivores and herbivores. When asked if he wanted to stay in Rexville, Buddy replied that the Pteranodon's were his family even though someday Buddy would grow up to big one of the biggest dinosaurs to roam the land. The story is based on the TV show Dino Train created by Craig Bartlett. There is the issue of these two types of dinosaurs living in harmony, but the real message is one about the importance of family and it would be a great book for adopted children.
