Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Fin, a dinosaur, is playing with his friends, with each one trying to top the others in tests of agility, daring, or strength. Then, a gang of bullies turns up and spoils the game. When Fin challenges the intruders, a chase begins. Slowly, they drop off as one cant leap, one cant swim, one cant climb, etc. Finally, the only remaining pursuer is T. rex, at which point Fin spreads his feeble fluffy arms and flies away. The story line is slight and forgettable, but young dinosaur lovers will be drawn in by Blathwayts highly detailed illustrations. Each reptile, as well as the landscape that Fin and his pursuers traverse, is carefully drawn with clean lines and in a crisp palette that invites children to pore over the pictures. This is not a storytime choice, but its a suitable selection for collections in which dinosaur books experience high demand.–Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ

Review

"Glows with Benedict Blathwayt's subtle colouring" -- Lindsey Fraser The Bookseller "Bravo, Blathwayt!" -- Amanda Craig The Times "The fantastic new picture book by Benedict Blathwayt that allows small children's imaginations to both soar and roar! ... What make his books so accomplished is the multilayering of the stories" -- Jacob Hope Achuka "Dinosaur fanatics will adore Benedict Blathwayt's beautifully detailed illustrations as much as they will love witnessing how the first dinobod discovered he knew how to fly" Parents News "An inspiring story about hidden talents and the beauty of being unique" Waterstones Books Quaterly

Format: Hardcover
Ages 3-6 will relish Dinosaur Chase, a spirited story of one Fin the dinosaur, who has spindly legs and is fluffy and is picked on by a gang of bullies for his many quirks. Funny drawings and easy reading lends to the story of a young dinosaur's hidden talents.

Format: Paperback
This is a surprisingly good book for young children and very popular with our 3 year old. You need to start by getting use to a world of talking, soccer-playing dinosaurs. Once there it leads children gently through the problems of dealing with playground bullies. The story concludes by showing kids that a little scrawny dinosaur can be better than the biggest, meanest bullies.

I was surprised to see stickers that it used to be a library book. It had an extra page that we had not seen before when we checked out a different version from the library.
