Boys especially will like this tale of a mean ole dino that may not be as mean as he wants you to think he is.
With dynamic illustrations and fun language, this is a book to get all riled up over.
This tale of a buck-toothed carnivore brings to life the sights, sounds and silliness of dinnertime in prehistoric suburbia. Imagination runs rampant. And adjectives fly off the page in descriptions that scream. For example, our favorite friend asks the reader: "Are you bad? I'm REALLY bad. Scare-the-tails-off-all-the-other-dinosaurs BAD. Got rip-'em-up CLAWS. Got bite-'em-up FANGS. Bad breath? YeaaaHHHHHHH." How great is that?
Before you deem him too scary, remember that this little guy holds a soft spot for his Mom. (And it really is the perfect Mother's Day book.) At the end, you may smile with delight and beg/plead/bribe your kids to listen again. This wacky, wordplay must-have gaurantees to illicit smiles and surprises. Again and again.
I love the way the dinosaur talks, and I love the illustrations. I especially appreciate that with an older child you can use this book to discuss some of the ways prey animals survive - we're shown vivid illustrations of running, hiding, herd defensive behavior, and camouflage.
No animals are harmed in this book, but more sensitive children might find the subject upsetting. I'm not rating it down for that, but if you think your kid might object to seeing a carnivore being a carnivore (it can be a little scary), be sure to read before you buy.

Bought this book because we love "I Stink" from the same author which is wonderful. My 2 yr old has it memorized. This book just doesn't have the same flow.Published on October 11, 2013 by Cassie
