Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Employing a simple fictional framework, this duo offers a friendly and informative introduction to the dinosaur age. As he awakens with his parents one bright day 150 million years ago, a diminutive Stegosaurus feels ``quite helpless in the big world.'' The young fellow is frightened by the Pterodactyls flying overhead, the Allosaurus that tries to crush him with its giant foot and the Ornitholestes that attempts to steal the egg that the Stegosaurus parents have buried in the sand. When the egg hatches, the ``no-longer-smallest'' Stegosaurus welcomes his baby sister, whom he introduces to a world of ``smoking volcanoes, giant ferns, inland seas, gigantic trees, stars, oceans.'' While making use of soft pastel shades, Sweat's pencil drawings boast an unusual clarity and dimension, depicting the various dinosaur species realistically yet benignly. Ages 2-5. (Feb.)
Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
Dinosaurs may be extinct, but their appeal is still boundless. Generally, they are associated with enormity, but this is the account of a tiny dinosaur, one who is both fascinated and intimidated by the immense world around him, not unlike a toddler. That world is depicted in watercolors with great detail, with a delicacy of touch not normally associated with the dawn of time. There will be plenty of opportunity for parents to practice the pronunciation of the various species as this timeless tale of the littlest protecting the largest will be re-read many times. Good tale when preparing for a new sibling, too.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-- This quiet book invites readers to share a young stegosaurus's world. Amid dragonflies and spiders floating in the warm air, this youngster hides from Pterodactyls, runs from an Allosaurus, helps to guard a new egg, warns his parents of an oncoming Ornitholestes, and welcomes a baby sister. Sweat's pencil drawings with oil wash bring the cartoonlike drawings to life. The book presents prehistoric facts in an entertaining fashion that will be truly accessible to its intended audience. However, the anthropomorphized stegosaurus will add confusion, for he ``. . . wanted to be big and strong,'' among other sentiments. For a story, this title is very factual; for nonfiction, it's fictionalized. While this may bother adult readers, it will not be a barrier for young listeners. Add it if more picture books on dinosaurs are needed. --Carolyn Noah, Central Mass. Regional Library System, Worcester, MA
