PreS-K–Shea's bright, busy, and not-so-ferocious red dinosaur is back from his brush with bedtime in this new high-energy offering. In the style of Dinosaur vs. Bedtime (Hyperion, 2008), the narrative sees many liquid challenges for the grinning creature and he insists after each one that he doesn't need to urinate. Will the three-juice-boxes lunch win? Will the whale watering vanquish the dinosaur? And will he make it to the potty after his close call splashing in rain puddles? The digital illustrations have strong lines and bold colors, perfectly complementing the spare but spot-on text. It begs to be read aloud to a crowd of excited preschoolers who will love to chime in with their own “roars!” A surefire hit both for existing fans and new browsers.Alison Donnelly, Collinsville Memorial Public Library, IL

As in Dinosaur vs. Bedtime (2008), this uproarious picture book captures a toddler’s rebellion. A small red dinosaur does not want to go to the potty, and as he plays, he imagines that every time he shuns the toilet, he is a champion : “Dinosaur wins again!” Finally, he can’t wait any longer. Can he make it to the bathroom in time? The urgency and then the relief on the last page is hilarious: “The potty wins! Close one, Dinosaur! Real, real close.” With its primary-colored creatures and feelings every kid will recognize, this is sure to attract preschool fans. Preschool. --Hazel Rochman

We got this for our daughter as well, and it is one of her favorite potty books. As an adult, I have no idea why but that the way it is, though? All the toddlers who have read it while here have laughed and talked about the dinosaur for hours.
It is simply drawn, uses pleasing colors, and is really fun to read with an active toddler because you can get in to the "wins" parts of the story by clapping, hooray-ing, and the like. There are many other books in the series to check out as well.
