Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roaaaar!  Roaar!  Nothing can stop me!

Nothing can stop little dinosaur—not talking grownups, spaghetti, or even bath time. But what happens when he faces the biggest challenge of all…bedtime?  

With spare text and irresistible dinosaur roaaars, little dinosaurs will be begging for this book to be read again and again.

Review:

"Shea (New Socks) makes a hilarious commentator as his hero, a small red dinosaur, elevates everyday encounters into a series of matches worthy of the WWF. 'Dinosaur versus... a bowl of spaghetti!' announces Shea and, with a trio of bold typographic roars (and two chomps), the bowl is vanquished. 'Dinosaur wins again!' declares Shea, as Dinosaur coolly acknowledges his triumph. Again and again, Dinosaur proves unbeatable — the foes he defeats include a pile of leaves, a big slide and 'talking grown-ups' — but the title hints at his Achilles heel. Dinosaur may not resemble anything found in a paleontology textbook, but he's a terrific surrogate. Incorporating paper, paint, photo collage and quick strokes of crayon, Shea's freewheeling compositions convey both a beguiling spontaneity and a preschooler's sense of invincibility. Kids will be only too happy to capitulate to this irresistible package. Ages 2 — 6. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
