At first I was unsure about the level of violence, but this is classified as a fairy tale, and the dinosaur backdrop actually sets the stage quite brilliantly. Most kids these days know that dinosaurs eat and fight each other, and should have no problem with the content and will understand the message on a truer level for it.
Critique-wise, I think the illustrations could have had some more variety, and I kind of imagine kids saying "what happened to the mother and princess?" so I wish there was one or two more pages devoted to the resolution, like with those characters showing up again. Unless the implication is that they're all eaten. That I don't much care for, because I don't like leaving the fates of characters unclear in a work for kids this young, and yet that reveal would be a bit too dark, in my opinion. But I'm speculating. Maybe they just left, in which case them coming back and championing Little T would have been nice.
For a picture book, which has to tell a very short and in most cases very simple story, this is impressively layered and worth checking out.
I especially enjoyed the humorous disclaimer after the title page.
This book reminds me of the heroric stories that I used to read to my daughter and later to my grandson when they were young.
the excellent illustrations bring the story to life, as do the songs at the end of the story, which make you smile, and enjoy the story even more.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to all parents and grandparents
