When Max visits the museum, he is so entranced by the T-Rex that the exhibit specialist, Dinosaur Dora, suggests that he write a letter to the therapod and ask him some questions. So begins an amusing correspondence, as Max eventually wins the Tyrannosaurus over with his enthusiasm and friendship...

An entertaining and interactive book, Dear Dinosaur includes the letters written back and forth between Max and the T-Rex, sometimes printed on the page, sometimes attached and needing to be folded out. The story from Chae Strathie is sweet, and sure to appeal to young dinosaur lovers who dream of having a prehistoric friend of their own. The artwork from illustrator Nicola O'Byrne is colorful and cute, capturing the humor of the story. I did wonder a bit, given that this is a British book, why the dinosaur's address is in Greenville, South Carolina. Was this changed for the American edition? I have discovered that there is an interactive dinosaur exhibit that opened at Greenville's Upcountry History Museum this past year, 2018, but given that the book was first published in 2017, I don't think that can be the explanation. Needless to say, this question of address in no way detracted from my enjoyment, it just puzzled me a bit. Recommended to young dinosaur lovers, and to anyone looking for picture-books that are interactive, and have fold-out pieces.
