This was fun. It was so much fun we read it twice, and I suspect we'll be reading it again in the morning. Why don't dinosaurs make good pets? Read this book and you'll find out! You will also find out that Gideon Kendall is a lovely illustrator, and Lynn Plourde has a sense of humor. Nice little appendix as well. ( )

School Library Journal, June 2007, page 120:

"This sumple story is told in rhyming couplets that don't always scan well, and the rhymes are occasionally stretched...The highlight of the tale is the skillfully rendered and entertaining double-page artwork....Despite the test's uneven cadence, the subject matter and humorous art will appeal to children."

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525477780, Hardcover)

Where does a young dinosaur admirer go to find a pet? The Dino Pets store carries every kind of dinosaur a kid could possibly want. Sure, some of them might be a little too big and others might be too fast, but there are advantages, too—a Seismosaurus makes a great backyard playset! In this bouncy read-aloud, the larger-than-life but well-meaning dinosaurs come to life in vibrant color. Kids will love the juxtaposition of prehistoric creatures and modern-day suburbia. A section of facts about the amazing giants makes the book a complete delight for the youngest paleontologists.
