Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Here's a compendium of geography and history disguised as rollicking dinosaur hoopla. While looking for dinosaur bones, readers will bump into Argentinian gauchos, Uruguay's disappearing plants and animals, Zimbabwe's stunning Victoria Falls and China's Great Wall. Along the way Most deftly debunks scientific nomenclature. Albertosaurus bones are found in Alberta, Canada; Alamosaurus fossils in Texas. The Yaleosaurus once lived--yes, it's true--near Yale University; even more, he chewed on soft plants, making him a candidate for the ``Ivy League.'' Most, a master of association, furnishes familiar bright and busy oil marker illustrations that make perfect sense in a chaotic context. In the Arctic, yesterday's Arctosaurus romps with contemporary walrus relations. The graceful Itemirus, whose fossils were found in Russia, performs at the Bolshoi, while in Oklahoma Acrocanthosaurus strikes the pose of an oil pump while standing above fossil fuels. Once again, Most has turned dinosaurs into magnets for all manner of factoids. In this not-so-trivial pursuit of knowledge, kids just may remember more than they mean to. Ages 4-8. Mar.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Bernard Most's recent, Where To Look for A Dinosaur, will delight petite dinosaur devotees- and their older brothers and sisters. Once again, the astute author/artist tickles young readers' funnybones with a blend of fact, fancy, and not-so-nonsensical speculation that simultaneously teaches and stirs imaginations. Now that he's mentioned it, for example, perhaps the peaceful, plant-eating Iguanadon, whose fossils have been found worldwide, will make the perfect official dinosaur of the United Nations. Mr. Most appends his amusing musings about the prehistoric past with a list of dinosaur museums, worldwide.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-- A book that will appeal not only to dinophiles, but also to young readers less familiar with this wildly popular subject. Various dinosaurs are described in relation to where their fossils have been found Austrosaurus in Australia, Arctosaurus in the Arctic, etc. Two or three sentence descriptions tell location, what the reptile's name means, and give a brief comment or joke on the animal's size, appearance, feeding habits, etc. The cartoon illustrations are in color marker, and show smiling walruses and dinosaurs. A listing of museums that have dinosaur exhibits is included. --Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY
