This was a clever story. The older brother, in typical fashion, tries to frighten his younger brother, Edward, with a story about a dinosaur hatching from the rock beneath his bed. Unfortunately for the older brother, Edward doesn't buy it and the older brother has to continually broaden the tapestry of lies until it becomes too much for him. The older brother ends up frightening himself with his own crazy story as Edward drifts off into a happy sleep just after turning the tables on his older brother with a clever insinuation that his older brother would be the target of a dinosaur rampage he’d created since he would be the only one that was awake when it all went down. It's a victory for Edward, and you can't help but feel a little satisfaction in seeing an evil ploy backfiring on the evil doer. Very nicely done. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0689811527, Hardcover)

When a book is dedicated "for my brothers Derek and Christopher, who came with the terror-tory" it's a good bet there's some fun to follow.

Edward has hidden a rock under his bed, and his brother(who must have read The Enormous Egg) terrorizes him with a set of suppositions: What if that rock were really a dinosaur egg? What if it hatched? What if Edward had to take care of it? What if the egg's family came to find the baby and punish its eggnapper? What if Edward turned the tables on his brother? (This book is recommended for ages 6-9, although no one older will mind an excuse to read it aloud to a young listener.)

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:18:47 -0400)

Edward gets more and more nervous as his older brother tries to convince him that a dinosaur egg is about to hatch under his bed.
