Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With its expressive cartoon dinosaurs, this lift-the-flap poetry book emphasizes fun over science. The rhymes have plenty of bounce . . . zippy illustrations and interactive format."  —Publishers Weekly

"The smooth writing reads aloud well . . . The playful design and typeface enhance the funny pictures; the silly, googly-eyed look of most of the dinosaurs is especially appealing."  —School Library Journal

"The short length of the poems, humorous illustration and, of course, those ever-popular flaps all combine to make this a sure hit."  —Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
The team of Mitton and Chapman present dinosaur lovers with another collection of poems (Gnash, Gnaw, Dinosaur!, 2009). This one features a new cast of seven species and mixes a few facts about each with some outright fun. Deinosuchus, a giant ancestor of the crocodile, warns, "When I give a cheery grin, I may seem kind and happy, / but look out for my jagged jaws-they're seriously . . . / snappy!" (this last is revealed when a flap is lifted). Other featured species include Compsognathus, Elasmosaurus, Stegosaurus, Hadrosaur, Archaeopteryx and Ankylosaurus. The author chooses a good blend of the popular and lesser-known dinos, as well as representatives from a variety of habitats. The scansion works, and the word choices nicely suit the target audience. The illustrator's dinosaurs are brimming with personality (and a bit of artistic license), their faces adorned with eyebrows and eyelashes. The short length of the poems, humorous illustration and, of course, those ever-popular flaps all combine to make this a sure hit . . . but beware-exposure to these poems could transform children into Againosauruses. (Picture book/poetry. 3-6)
