Synopses & Reviews
"Most of Reinhart's pop-up books hover around , so this paperback pop-up is a serious bargain (coloring book pages that open and close the book only add value). Inside, kids will find pared-down versions of Reinhart's trademark pop-ups that still show a good deal of personality and ingenuity. In one spread, readers pull down on a cloud to reveal a green pteranodon keeping an eye on her 'precious eggs,' and in the final scene, 'Armored Ankylosaurus fights back' against a T. rex; tugging its head causes its 'knobby tail' to swing toward the aggressor. Cheap thrills in a good way. Simultaneously available: A Princess Like Me. Ages 3 8. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
