PreSchool-Grade 1–It's bath time and the chase is on: The evening's come, I hear a roar,/it's time to catch my dinosaur. Once the wild child is caught, it is time to clean up and settle down. Horns and claws are polished, fangs are brushed, the wee beasty is tucked in with a pile of stuffed toys, and it's off to dreamland. Parents having trouble with bath- and bedtime may find this interlude the perfect way to settle their own wild beasts. Plentiful white space shows off the illustrations well for storytime. The youngster and her antics are portrayed in colorful, playful, and imaginative watercolor-and-ink cartoon illustrations. Fans of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are
(HarperCollins, 1988) might see some resemblance in the beasts and dream jungle at book's end. Pair the two titles for a fine beastly bedtime romp.–Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada
