PreSchool-Grade 2—This follow-up to Gnash, Gnaw, Dinosaur! (Kingfisher, 2009) pairs comic verses with colorful paintings. The lift-the-flap element will entice children who like surprises. "Stegosaurus" closes with, "But when it comes to enemies, not one of them likes/the tip of my tail with its sharp, hard spikes!" Then lift the flap over the tail and see—"Swish!"—smaller dinosaurs knocked about. The smooth writing reads aloud well, and each of the eight poems provides a few facts about the creatures. The playful design and typeface enhance the funny pictures; the silly, googly-eyed look of most of the dinosaurs is especially appealing.—Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL

“Cleverly illustrated . . . . fun and informative poems with creative lif-the-flaps makeing learning not only fun, but memorable.” ―Newton's Book News
“The [poetry] pieces are accessible and amusing. Bright cartoonlight illustrations make this a friendly, not frightening, world. Lift-the-flaps extend the action as well as the poem. ” ―Horn Book
“With its expressive cartoon dinosaurs, this lift-the-flap poetry book (following Gnash, Gnaw, Dinosaur!) emphasizes fun over science.The rhymes have plenty of bounce . . . zippy illustrations and interactive format.” ―Publishers Weekly
“The author chooses a good blend of the popular and lesser-known dinos, as well as representatives from a variety of habitats. The scansion works, and the word choices nicely suit the target audience. The illustrator's dinosaurs are brimming with personality (and a bit of artistic license), their faces adorned with eyebrows and eyelashes. The short length of the poems, humorous illustration and, of course, those ever-popular flaps all combine to make this a sure hit…” ―Kirkus Reviews
