Editor's Pick, Creative Child Magazine 

This captivating story educates the reader not only about the different types of dinosaurs and animals that lived millions of years but also about the different Eras. Larry Gets Lost in Prehistoric Times is an exciting way to learn about this time period.

Gr 1–2—Dinosaurs don't need gimmicks to attract attention, and Larry, the time-traveling dog, is completely unnecessary as a guide in this quasi-introduction. Flat, repetitive rhyming text recounts the dog's journey and is interspersed with brief descriptions of specific dinosaurs. These comments are sometimes in a smaller and/or paler font, but they serve more to interrupt the flow of Larry's story than to inform. The Brachiosaurus with eyelashes, the grinning baby Woolly Mammoth, and the menacing T. rex and Triceratops are disconcerting in the cartoon illustrations that span horizontal spreads and an incongruous vertical one. This is a superfluous entry in the crowded field of dinosaur books available to the kids who are entranced by these creatures.—Frances E. Millhouser, formerly at Fairfax County Public Library, VA

A pooch with, in previous outings, a penchant for straying touristically in various modern cities takes a quick scoot through the age of the dinosaurs, and after. Having dozed off while his human buddy Pete is studying, Larry "wakes" beneath the feet of a huge, plant-eating sauropod and then flees from a T. Rex, going past various armored and feathered dinos. He goes on to get glimpses of Cretaceous fliers and swimmers, then trots through the Cenozoic Era to the Stone Age and, at last, his modern dinner. In illustrations that look like scraped screen prints, the prehistoric critters are recognizable in shape but monochromatically colored. The often low-contrast or pastel hues are as flat as the main narrative's verse: "These guys look scary, / With armor and spikes. / But that's just for defense; / It's plants that they like." Along with unexplained terminology ("Cretaceous-Paleogene Extinction Event"), the accompanying prose captions offer such awkwardly phrased gems as: "If something becomes buried under the right conditions, the evidence of it can last for millions of years." Even very young dinosaur devotees will have no trouble finding better pickings elsewhere. (Informational picture book. 5-7)
