PreS-Gr 1–A late-waking sauropod finds himself alone and asks some prehistoric beasts if they have seen his herd. Suddenly, he runs into toothy, clawy predators and knows he's in big trouble. He's too heavy to run, too big to hide, and has no good fighting body parts. But then he realizes that with his huge dimensions, he can bluff and scare the carnivores away. In the process, he spots the footprints of his herd, resulting in a joyful reunion. This tale of a young dinosaur finding his inner power is told through childlike vernacular with varying type sizes and colors to emphasize mood. The full-color watercolor illustrations feature plenty of action and multiple perspectives as the cheeky, pink, purple, and blue protagonist seeks out others of his kind. Perfect as a read-aloud or a read-alone, this story about a lost youngster finding his courage and his mojo will secure a welcome place in the vast herd of picture books available.Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI

In the same vein as I Stink! (2002) and I’m Bad! (2008), this title features an oversize, swaggering hero, who is, this time, “a whole lotta lizard.” After waking late and discovering that his herd has disappeared, a giant purple sauropod sets out to find his fellow “biggies” and has a run-in with menacing predators along the way. A subtle message about standing ground against bullies underlies this story, which features the McMullans’ familiar delights: infectiously, rhythmic text; inventive, animated art; and an endearing, boastful narrator whose kidlike qualities children will instantly recognize.
