Loved the big brother. Loved the homely background story, as told by the illustrations that were between the ones involving the dinosaurs. Loved what happened to people after the dinosaurs left. Just a quiet, but funny and imaginative, little story. You won't mind sharing this with your children every time they ask for it - and soon they'll be telling it to you.

One of the few sequels to picture books that I think may be even better than the first. Patrick explains HIS version of what really happened to the dinosaurs to his older brother. Great story, great illustrations. Again, a favorite of my oldest son.
oooooh! My son is a dinosaur lover and can I just say this is a very cute book. It's funny and children can really let their imagination go wild when reading it. I love, "Dinosaurs got tired of doing all the work, so they built a big spaceship and left." This could be a fun read aloud for grades k-2.
