Editorial Reviews

"Dinosaur-crazed preschoolers will adore the whimsical account of a predator's logic." -Publishers Weekly"The artwork glows with warmth and vitality . . . beautifully formatted and well-conceived . . . It has just a hint of scariness, with a bit of humor thrown in--exactly right for the youngest dinosaur fans. A small book, but one that should be very welcome in storytimes." -School Library Journal"The delicacy of the illustrations underscores [the dinosaur's] wistful, carnivorous plight." -New York Times Book Review
