Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A tumbleweed-tumbling, rip-roaring good tale." School Library Journal
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"With his wispy lines and pebble-toned watercolors, New Yorker cartoonist O'Brien adds a quirky charm to this disjointed tale of a toothy dinosaur cowpoke," said PW. Ages 4-8. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
A wild-west tale in the tradition of "Pecos Bill," this story features a hero wearing a ten thousand gallon hat. After all, everything's bigger in Texas. This friendly dinosaur helps his friends from the Bar Double U ranch save the herd from rustlers. This book is sure to be a hit with any child enamored with cowboys or dinosaurs.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-What do you get when you mix dinosaur mania, a tall tale, and Texas lore? A story about Tyrannosaurus Tex, who saves the day for the Bar Double U gang. When lowdown, dirty varmints set a prairie fire in order to steel Double U's cattle, Tex wipes out the rustlers and puts out the fire with water dumped from his ten-thousand-gallon Stetson hat. O'Brien's large, earth-toned, lariat-bound watercolor illustrations with ink crosshatching create a mosaic effect. Birney skillfully lavishes her fast-moving tale with alliterative cowboy jargon (``...too old to beat a biscuit...too young to bend a bean''), making oral group reading a delight. A tumbleweed-tumbling, rip-roaring good tale.-Claudia Cooper, Ft. Stockton Independent School District, TX
