Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Three dinosaur playmates fear fierce Tyson and share rumors of his terrifying reputation. As "Boom...Boom...Boom" sounds in the distance, they realize he is getting closer and their shaking increases. The booms turn to sobs as a tiny tyrannosaurus appears and bemoans his lack of playmates. When the three friends realize he is harmless, they invite him and his "little" brother to join them in a game of soccer, only to meet the real Tyson. With its vivid, saturated complementary colors and bold black outlines, the cover art of a toothsome and terrible Tyson would be compelling to any primary reader, not just the dinophiles. Thick card stock pages are pleasantly firm and easy to turn. Illustrations of the three friends are consistent and identifiable, with increasingly frightened expressions and "gasps" as Tyson appears in a full-spread foldout. The dialogue is set in bold, black type with Tyson's terrible traits emphasized by suitably "scary" and "horrible" font styles. With its kid-friendly format, cheerful colors, and laugh-aloud ending, Tyson is a definite crowd pleaser with "read it again!" appeal.—Lynne Mattern, Robert Seaman School, Jericho, NY
