Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With its expressive cartoon dinosaurs, this lift-the-flap poetry book (following Gnash, Gnaw, Dinosaur!) emphasizes fun over science. The rhymes have plenty of bounce, though they can feel forced. A Stegosaurus with hot-pink spines boasts, “I am stegosaurus. Steadily I go,/ searching for the place where the best plants grow./ My nut-size brain in my tiny little head/ somehow finds a way to get my heavy body fed.” A large flap reveals him swiping his spiked tail at three taunting dinos. Readers will likely overlook the occasional awkwardness of the text given the zippy illustrations and interactive format. Ages 3-6. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—This follow-up to Gnash, Gnaw, Dinosaur! (Kingfisher, 2009) pairs comic verses with colorful paintings. The lift-the-flap element will entice children who like surprises. "Stegosaurus" closes with, "But when it comes to enemies, not one of them likes/the tip of my tail with its sharp, hard spikes!" Then lift the flap over the tail and see—"Swish!"—smaller dinosaurs knocked about. The smooth writing reads aloud well, and each of the eight poems provides a few facts about the creatures. The playful design and typeface enhance the funny pictures; the silly, googly-eyed look of most of the dinosaurs is especially appealing.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
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)
