This has its nice moments, but I just can't get behind any story that relies so much on the joke "I'm gonna kiss you! Oops! I ate you up!" Cutesy and red in tooth and claw will always be an uncomfortable combination for me (people have such feelings about e.g. Watership Down but this is way more twisted) and that is that. ( )

Dinah has just hatched out of her egg and there is so much for her to see and do. First she stomps then she chomps and then she wants to kiss. Dinah does not know how to kiss and every time she tries she either stomps, chomps, or whomps the other dinosaur.

This book was adorable, especially for little ones who are able to understand humor. Dinah hatches and chomps and stomps things, until she learns what a kiss is! She decides she wants to kiss everything, but is not very successful. It reminds me very much of my younger brother when he was a baby, he liked to BITE everyone! The artwork is cute and bright, it would even be easy for a young child to emulate the artwork. Could be easily used in a classroom to talk about good behavior.

WHOMP! An energetic young dinosaur figures out her own way to give a kiss in the latest from the creator of the Caldecott Honor–winning Interrupting Chicken.

For newly hatched dinosaur Dinah, the world is an exciting place. There is so much to see and do. She tries this — STOMP! And she tries that — CHOMP! Then she sees a kiss and knows just what she wants to try next. Who can she kiss? And after a few disastrous attempts, can she figure out how to give someone a kiss without whomping, chomping, or stomping them first? Young children will chuckle and cheer when Dinah finds just the right creature for her dinosaur kisses in this funny new picture book from David Ezra Stein.
