From Our Editors

 Kids are kids no matter what their species, as Jane Yolen proves in this bedtime story to end all bedtime stories. Children will giggle in recognition at the dinosaurs that thump their tails in displeasure at having to go to sleep and smile at the ones that like to end the night with a hug and kiss. Ideal for children who love dinosaurs but are ambivalent about sleepy time, How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? has plenty to its credit: mainly, the singular artwork of Mark Teague. This crafty illustrator infuses the pictures with his customary good humour and obvious affection for children in scenes that work hilariously: huge dinos such as T. Rex and Pteranodon look sublimely funny in ordinary human bedrooms. And children will like seeing themselves in the babyish behaviour, too, such as when the snake-headed Apatosaurus swings its head about in a tantrum and when the Stegosaurus obediently turns off the light with his tail. With 10 dinosaurs in all, listed in the end-papers and with clues to the identity of each in the illustrations — see the building blocks that spell out “Pteranodon” — children will enjoy the story that comes before bedtime so much, they may forget what comes after it!
