Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Add a touch of wit, whimsy, and wholesome ridiculosity to dinosaur deliberations with Louis Phillips' Wackysaurus, Jeff Moss' Bone Poems, and Bernard Most's A Pair of Protoceratops and A Trio of Triceratops. Mr. Philips' recently reissued dinosaur knock-knocks, puns, riddles, and other jokes of the dinosaur ilk will make kids laugh and adults groan. Mr. Moss' poetic foray, deftly illustrated by Tom Leigh, consists of 43 mostly dinosaur poems, many of which have titles longer than the poems themselves, e.g. What You Should Answer if Some Scientist Comes Up To You and Says, "What Do All Proboscideans Have in Common?" "Noses/Like hoses." Mr. Most's picture books feature the respective saurians minding their p's and t's-plunging into pools or playing Ping-Pong, tooting trumpets or tickling turkeys. Little ones will have fun imagining silly saurians p...ing and t...ing just like Mr. Most's. 1997 (orig,

Gr 3-6-- Some new entries about dinosaurs appear amidst the retreads, recycled from old elephant, grape, and other fad jokes of the past, accompanied by black-and-white cartoons of bug-eyed people and beasts. Some children may find them funny and fresh; others will find them far-fetched. A few of the longer, storylike jokes will require some concentrated reading and thus encourage reluctant readers to go to the end of the page. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling Sch . , NY
