Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
What would the world be like if the dinosaurs came back? Well, just think of all the useful things they could do! They could reach books from tall shelves, cut down trees, mow lawns, give giraffes someone to look up to--and, most of all, be pets for those who love dinosaurs! Most's whimsical first book, illustrated with simple, childlike drawings, is a springboard for discussion with young dinosaur lovers.

    Very Cute Book!

    This is a wonderful book to start a discussion with young people about what would happen if the dinosaurs did come back, and why it's not a process that could ever happen. But it's ALWAYS fun to think of the what if possibility!

    Great Book!

    This author is amazing! I read this book as a child and found it again as an adult. Kids love the exciting storyline. There is a great sense of imagination for them to identify with.
