Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-A bouncy, boisterous, colorfully illustrated story. Several prehistoric beasts are sitting down to enjoy their snacks at the Dinosaur Cafe when along comes Tyrannosaurus, who is not satisfied with gobbling and gulping up menus-he wants meat! Iguanadon sneaks away to phone Terry Triceratops for help. With cacophonous commotion, Terry and the other dinosaurs knock down, jump on, and tickle the bully until he leaves. Afterward, the victorious friends regale each other with battle tales. The picture-book crowd will delight in the tumult and turmoil included here. Pair this title with Bernard Most's ABC T-Rex (Harcourt, 2000) and Tony Mitton's Dinosaurumpus! (Scholastic, 2003) for an energetic, spirited storytime.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Moses's latest turns into a rollicking rhyming showdown when Tyrannosaurus shows up to eat at the old-fashioned diner. Out-classed, the peaceful vegetarians phone Terry Triceratops for help. While tables are overturned and plates and cups scattered, the big fight scene ends with a rather tame pounce on the tummy and a tickling of feet. Tyrannosaurus begs for mercy and gives his promise that he'll stop acting so tough. The artwork could not be more suited to the text. Every dinosaur has a unique personality, and Parsons is a master at illustrating facial expressions. Details are minimal, but more than enough for fans to identify their favorites, especially with their names as clues (Steggy the Stegosaurus, for instance). The interior of the diner will spark memories for older generations. Sure to be a favorite. (Picture book. 3-8)

    A Must-Read for Preschoolers!

    "Trouble at the Dinosaur Cafe" is an amazing book that will have any child begging to hear it again and again! The story starts on a happy day at the dinosaur cafe, all the herbivore dinosaurs enjoying their plant foods. All of a sudden, the scary Tyranasaurus Rex storms in, looking for some meat! As all chaos breaks out, Iggy Iguanadon is smart enough to call the tough Terry Triceratops. Terry comes to the aide of his friends, and all the dinosaurs work together to overcome the big bully beast.
    As a preschool teacher, I can guarantee that young children will love hearing it again and again. I was lucky enough to find this book on tape years ago. We have listened to "Dinosaur Cafe" so much this year that the children have the entire book memorized, from the begining title to the ending line. They even use their excited, nervous, scared, relieved voices at the right time! During free-play time every day at least three children will ask to listen to 'Dinosaur Cafe' on tape. When playing with toy dinosaurs, they retell the story, picking out the correct dinosaur for each character.
    As entertaining as this book is, it is also a great gateway to academic lessons. It is a way to teach the differences between herbivores and carnivores, the specific names of various dinoasaurs, etc. It is also a great way to discuss bullying, helping friends in tough situations, and working together as a group to overcome a shared obstacle.
    This us a 'must have' book for every family and every preschool class!
