Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ernest B. Spinosaurus has been very good this year. Sure, he accidentally ruined his dad’s toothbrush with glitter glue, left his muddy socks in the fridge, and knotted his sister’s tail, but he definitely deserves to be on the nice list (257 nice things is one more than 256 naughty things, after all). In increasingly specific detail, Ernest tells Santasaurus exactly what he wants for Christmas and how much of a good dino he has been this year. Kaminsky’s bright, colorful illustrations of exuberant dinosaurs doing silly and slightly naughty things are chuckle worthy on their own, but they work particularly well paired with Ernest’s less-than-earnest letters to Santasaurus, asking for gifts all year long: “No need to thank me for putting in my order early. That’s what nice dinos do.” Grades K-3. --Sarah Hunter

Review

". . . Ernest's escapades are amusing . . . Frenetic, cartoon-style illustrations in jazzy shades add to the humor." --Kirkus Reviews

The main character, Ernest, is choosing what he wants for Christmas. He wants different kinds of cool scooters. He's very impatient, but also full of ideas. My favorite thing about this book is that it's very funny! The thing that I would change is to show all the scooters. It's a very nice book. I recommend you buy it.

This was such an imaginative story with great illustrations. I ended up buying several copies for all the little ones on my Christmas list. I have several checks on my Santasaurus list done now and it’s not even October yet!

Format: Hardcover
Dear Santasaurus is a unique and clever picture book. The characters are surprisingly well developed and I felt I really got to know Ernest B. Spinosaurus and his little sister, Amber. With vibrant, humorous illustrations, the story is told through a series of letters Ernest sends to Santasaurus. There is so much to this book, that as soon as I came to the last page, I read it through again. A wonderfully entertaining book for Christmas or any time of year.

I just read this book and I love it! Dinosaurs have energy and so do kids. Both realize they have to be on Santa's good list to get that special gift. Can this little dino do it? The illustrations capture the story perfectly. A great blend!
