The same team of pros that last year brought us the antic How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? have now brought us that rare thing: a sequel that is funnier and even better than their first dinosaur diversion. For starters, there is something intrinsically droll about these lumbering lummoxes ambling about, leaving a trail of crumpled tissues behind them. In due time even the youngest listener will begin to see similarities between the two species when they are under the weather: spitting pills in the sink; hiding from the doctor, etc. In the end, sanity prevails, and sleep, juice and tender-loving care bring peace and health to all. There could be no better gift for an ailing child. Teague and Yolen remain a winning team.
