More About the Author

Born and raised in New York City, Jane Yolen now lives in Hatfield, Massachusetts. She attended Smith College and received her master's degree in education from the University of Massachusetts. The distinguished author of more than 170 books, Jane Yolen is a person of many talents. When she is not writing, Yolen composes songs, is a professional storyteller on the stage, and is the busy wife of a university professor, the mother of three grown children, and a grandmother. Active in several organizations, Yolen has been on the Board of Directors of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, was president of the Science Fiction Writers of America from 1986 to 1988, is on the editorial board of several magazines, and was a founding member of the Western New England Storytellers Guild, the Western Massachusetts Illustrators Guild, and the Bay State Writers Guild. For twenty years, she ran a monthly writer's workshop for new children's book authors. In 1980, when Yolen was awarded an honorary Doctor of Law degree by Our Lady of the Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts, the citation recognized that "throughout her writing career she has remained true to her primary source of inspiration--folk culture." Folklore is the "perfect second skin," writes Yolen. "From under its hide, we can see all the shimmering, shadowy uncertainties of the world." Folklore, she believes, is the universal human language, a language that children instinctively feel in their hearts. All of Yolen's stories and poems are somehow rooted in her sense of family and self. The Emperor and the Kite, which was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1983 for its intricate papercut illustrations by Ed Young, was based on Yolen's relationship with her late father, who was an international kite-flying champion. Owl Moon, winner of the 1988 Caldecott Medal for John Schoenherr's exquisite watercolors, was inspired by her husband's interest in birding. Yolen's graceful rhythms and outrageous rhymes have been gathered in numerous collections. She has earned many awards over the years: the Regina Medal, the Kerlan Award, the World Fantasy Award, the Society of Children's Book Writers Award, the Mythopoetic Society's Aslan Award, the Christopher Medal, the Boy's Club Jr. Book Award, the Garden State Children's Book Award, the Daedalus Award, a number of Parents' Choice Magazine Awards, and many more. Her books and stories have been translated into Japanese, French, Spanish, Chinese, German, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Afrikaans, !Xhosa, Portuguese, and Braille. With a versatility that has led her to be called "America's Hans Christian Andersen," Yolen, the child of two writers, is a gifted and natural storyteller. Perhaps the best explanation for her outstanding accomplishments comes from Jane Yolen herself: "I don't care whether the story is real or fantastical. I tell the story that needs to be told."

A wonderful book for any dino-lover, and even more special because the author decided to use the pronoun "she" in this book. As a child *obsessed* with dinosaurs, and now a mom to a nearly two-year-old daughter who also enjoys playing and learning about dinosaurs, I was pleasantly surprised to see that this book decided to not only include, but warmly invite girls into the dino genre.

As to the reviewers who somehow feel that their sons' masculinity is being threatened by this... are you serious?! How very sad for the boys being raised by mothers who feel their sons' sense of self is so fragile that a simple pronoun change can and will endanger everything their gender identifies with. These are likely the same mothers/parents who would ridicule and belittle young boys who might play with dolls, or engage in role-playing activities involving dressing up. Girls have every right to enjoy dinosaurs, and authors of dinosaur books for children have every right to include BOTH boys and girls in their stories.

I have many of these dinosaur books that I bought for my grandsons. They love them, especially the four year old. I am also a preschool teacher and have read them in the classroom. What four year old doesn't love dinosaurs!

I bought this for my son who LOVES dinosaurs. He already has several books from this series. I like how the dinosaurs names are by their pictures in the story. It makes answering what kind of dino they are a lot easier,lol. This book was good, and the series is great. I would recomend it for any child who loves dinosaurs.

My Grandsons love these books so I make sure I have a couple in my car. For boys who love dinosaurs and parents who are kept busy teaching good manners etc. these books benefit everyone. I would highly recommend books by Jane Yolen.

My six year old nephew loves the books in this series, so of course he got this one for his sixth birthday. Now he is beginning to read them by himself. Fortunately, he still lets me read them to him, which is fun for both of us.

Hard cover so it is sturdy and stands up if displaying. Cute story about a little dinosaur and how he/she acts at their own birthday party. My son loved the story and he had me read it over and over to him. They have a whole series of books on How Do Dinosaurs clean their rooms or How do Dinosaurs make friend ect.
