Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here?s a book that begs to be read aloud. From the very first ?GRRRRRR!? and ?ROAR!? of the Super Hungry Dinosaur, kids will be rooting for Hal to save his parents and his dog, Billy, from the huge beast. And Hal saves them in the most unusual way (hint: It involves spaghetti) in this delightful twist on the tantrum story from well-loved and bestselling author Martin Waddell and debut illustrator Leonie Lord.

Review:

"The crayoned illustrations of debuting talent Lord are a terrific match for Waddell's (Bee Frog) effortless channeling of a very young storyteller. A boy named Hal and his dog, Billy, are playing in the backyard when a huge T-Rex crashes through the fence (' 'I'm hungry and I've come to eat you!' roared the Super Hungry Dinosaur'). How Hal brings the Super Hungry Dinosaur to heel — and teaches him that Mom's spaghetti and meatballs are far more satisfying than eating humans or pets — is told, as a child would, through the simple accumulation of over-the-top events, brisk dialogue and lots of evocative sound effects ('Grrrrrrr!' 'Slurp!' 'Burp!'). Taking her cue from children's drawings, Lord maintains a single, stage-like perspective, frequently breaking up the action into sequential strips (a chase scene involving a clothesline, trampoline and garden hose takes up several pages). She also pares down details, giving the pictures a distilled comic urgency. Her obvious glee at drawing the green, ravenous dinosaur is infectious and should inspire readers to grab their own box of crayons. Ages 3 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
