Review:
As the subject of a book for youngest listener/viewers, dinosaurs are like money in the bank to publishers. And when they are accompanied by a seasoned author like Jane Yolen and an illustrator as ingratiating as Mark Teague, nursery best-sellerdom is virtually guaranteed. While adults may initially question these lumbering behemoths as suitable bedtime-story fare, Teague has miraculously contrived to render Allosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex, and eight other creatures of their ilk irresistibly cuddly. Yolen's lilting, reassuring verse cries out for repetition, so grown-up readers should brace themselves for countless requests to "Read it again."
