Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The ultra-mean carnivore Tyrannosaurus Rex is outsmarted by two gentle souls, Duckbill and Ankylosaurus, in this cautionary tale set in a dinosaur neighborhood. It is true that the carnivore has great strength and huge, sharp teeth, but, alas, he has such a small brain. The smaller dinosaurs use their smarts and bravery to knock Tyrannosaurus Rex off balance and fling mud into his eyes. The carnivore slinks off, humiliated. Because the fury and fierceness of Rex is strongly depicted, the story can be quite alarming for young children. For school-age children, the worthwhile lesson that brains can defeat brawn is driven home effectively. In the process of reading this book and studying the illustrations, children will also learn much about dinosaurs. A chart at the back of the book identifies the dinosaurs in this story, and includes a pronunciation guide. 2000 (orig. 1988), Harcourt Inc., and $7.00. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati
