Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—Freedman and Cort offer another homage to underpants. Cartoons in bright colors and patterns pep up the rhymed tale that explains the demise of dinosaurs. According to Freedman, "When T. rex saw man's undies,/He roared with deafening rants./I don't want to eat you up./I want your underpants." All dinosaurs follow the obsessive fad, escalating to a manic dino tug-of-war that wipes out every order, saving mankind. Despite the skimpy plot, preschoolers will giggle as itchy or tight briefs annoy Stegosaurus or Diplodocus, while theft victim cavemen shyly cover up with huge leaves or the few remaining pairs of underwear.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

From Booklist

As long as you can suspend all sense of evolution, literature, and good taste and are of a single-digit age, you’ll crack up with hysterics at this theory of dinosaur extinction from the creators of Aliens Love Underpants (2007). According to the story, cavemen began to feel “embarrassed in the nude,” and so they “dreamed up underpants,” which the dinos coveted and copied, creating a mass frenzy that escalated into a Mighty Underpants War and the end of the giant beasts. Once again, the rhyming text and illustrations turn this into a comic delight. Preschool-Grade 2. --Andrew Medlar

We LOVE Aliens Love Underpants, and I was so excited to see this book...my son loves dinosaurs. I eagerly read through it and was horrified! I cannot comprehend how the author, illustrator and publisher all thought this was a good idea. The dinosaurs kill each other...they are lying dead in the last pages. I agree with another reviewer...rewrite it! It is not appropriate for the target audience at all. I would give it zero stars if Amazon allowed.

While I agree with some of the points made by other reviewers (an absurd premise and a weird ending), my 6 year old finds this book hilarious. Yes, she gets that it is nonsensical, but, she finds it funny that dinosaurs are obsessed with underpants. We have not read the Aliens Love Underpants book. The ending is not horrifying in the sense that we all know that the dinosaurs were, indeed, "wiped out." What other reviewers seem to have missed is that it is actually a play on words ~ "wiped out" meaning exhausted as well as "wiped out" meaning extinct.

While not high literature, this is an entertaining book, especially for children of a certain age who find potty humor funny.

You would think that any story that had underpants and dinosaurs in it would be a sure bet as a group read aloud. Not so. The rhyming does not flow and the story line is so silly that I think the kids even realize that this makes absolutely no sense. This could have been so much better. I really liked the illustrations - they are nice and vibrant, but even they can't save this book. It's too low on laughs - once you get over the initial laughs that are generated from the mere mention of underpants, there's just nothing there. Stick with Aliens Love Underpants and any of the other zillion dinosaur stories out there.

I am cracking up as I'm reading these reviews! This book is non-sense, but it's the best kind of non-sense! I have three boys ages 20 months to 6 years, and they all LOVE this book! It is without a doubt one of their very favorites. They laugh hysterically every time we read it. The beginning of the book tells you that this is the story of how dinosaurs went extinct. My boys have noticed that dinosaurs aren't roaming around the neighborhood and indeed don't exist anymore. So...the ending isn't at all horrifying to them. I haven't read "Aliens Love Underpants," and from what I can gather that may be the one people prefer. Having not read that one though...this book is just awesome. Love it, love it, love it.

this was a big disappointment. the first underpants book, Aliens Love Underpants, was innovative, funny, and sweet. Dinosaurs starts out that way, but deteriorates into unpleasant violence. This is a SMALL CHILDRENS' book, for Pete's sake. Rewrite it.

Dinasours love underpants is a cute rhyming story for children that love to laugh at the thought of dinasours wearing underpants. This is a new humerous version of why dinasours go extinct. My son can't help but laugh every time I read this to him.

What more could a 3-year-old boy want than dinosaurs and underpants? My grandson chooses his own unders carefully each morning - will it be spiderman, superman, Flash - a big decision. He plays very happily with his many dinosaurs. This book combines two of his major interests into one and will long remain a favorite.

You never know what your child will respond to. I found with both my kids that they needed to want to be potty trained before we had success. This book is what did it for my son. At the time he loved dinosaurs and it made him prefer underwear to diapers and we finally had success with potty training.
