Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Patrick's beloved dinosaurs (PATRICK'S DINOSAURS, illustrated by Donald Carrick, 1983, etc.) enter the new millennium with an updated imaginative flight. Patrick, who locates dinosaurs on the Internet, is unaware that the dinosaurs have been observing him from their own planet; he is whisked away one night by the friendly Flato in a giant bumblebee' of a spaceship. When Patrick lands in a dinosaur schoolyard, a clever role reversal takes place and he finds himself the human equivalent of dinosaur show and tell.' In one particularly funny moment, Patrick is grilled with questions such as, What is it like to be warm-blooded? Did you hatch from an egg? What is your favorite food?' A soccer game ensues, shadowed by the arrival of a foot-stomping, tree-cracking tyrannosaurus rex. Patrick is hustled back aboard the spaceship, and lands safely back in his own bedroom, where, instead of stars, he dreams of dinosaurs.... Dinosaur-enthusiasts will welcome the return of their long-necked, personable friends, which Milgrim depicts as cuddly, cartoon-like, Barneyesque blue, green, and purple creatures." Kirkus Reviews
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Carrick created Patrick's Dinosaurs and its sequel with her late husband, illustrator Donald Carrick. While those books featured realistic-looking dinosaurs in impossible settings, Milgrim (Dog Brain; Cows Can't Fly) doodles these dinos--they are as whimsical as their surroundings. Patrick's musing at the close of What Happened to Patrick's Dinosaurs?--that the prehistoric animals "built a big spaceship and left"--proves to be true, as he discovers during a chat with an extraterrestrial dinosaur via an Internet link. His brother, Hank, nods off to sleep, but Patrick is mesmerized by his starry screensaver. Suddenly, "the freckled face of a dinosaur" appears on the screen. The roly-poly dino wears a pair of purple wraparound sunglasses. "I'll be there soon," he says and promptly arrives at the window in a spaceship. He introduces himself as Flato ("It rhymes with Play-Doh") and whisks Patrick off to a planet with a welcoming committee of dinosaurs. Patrick romps among the herbivores before returning home. Patrick's latest adventure is purely entertaining fare. Young technophiles won't learn a thing about real dinos, software or outer space, but they will be entertained. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
In the competent hands of author Carol Carrick, dinosaurs are loveable creatures. Readers have met these dinosaurs before in Patrick's Dinosaurs and What Happened to Patrick's Dinosaurs? On this outing, the dinosaurs jump out of the computer's screensaver and whisk Patrick out into space and to their home planet. Patrick goes to school with the friendly dinosaurs and enjoys class time, sharing time, and recess with them. The dinosaurs are all good sports until the fun is ruined by the timelessly villainous T-Rex. This book is more riotous than the previous two; but the warmth and friendship Patrick and these prehistoric creatures share is as evident as ever.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 This sequel to Patrick's Dinosaurs (1983) and What Happened to Patrick's Dinosaurs? (1986, both Clarion) describes an imaginary world in which dinosaurs live in outer space and check in on earthly inhabitants such as Patrick ever so often. After appearing to him on the Internet, Flato (which "rhymes with Play-Doh") invites Patrick to his planet to be his "show and tell." Fans of the earlier books, illustrated by the late Donald Carrick, may feel a bit disconcerted with Milgrim's modern illustrations. Yet the muted green, blue, and purple creatures with their comic, bulbous heads and bodies blend well with the outer-space theme. Unlike the previous titles' successful combination of interesting fact with fantasy, this new tale is pure make-believe. The author continues to use the outdated term "brontosaurus" rather than the preferred "apatosaurus." Fans may just want to skip this bit of fluff and stick with the old favorites.

Patrick is hustled back aboard the spaceship, and lands safely back in his own bedroom, where, instead of stars, he dreams of dinosaurs. The interwoven dinosaur facts of the earlier books are absent here, other than identifying a few plant-eaters, and the author still refers to the apatopsaurus as a brontosaurus. Nevertheless, dinosaur-enthusiasts will welcome the return of their long-necked, personable friends, which Milgrim depicts as cuddly, cartoon-like, Barneyesque blue, green, and purple creatures.
