The toys really come to life in this story. Princess dinosaur is a rough and rumble kind of girl who also likes to play dress up. Until the unthinkable happens, Spot the family dog snatches her up and buries her. Princess dinosaur must escape and reunite with her friends. This is a fun and exciting story

Normally this book would disturb me a little! However, my 4 yr old daughter firmly believes she IS a T-rex (and a princess), so oddly enough, this has become a household favorite. Found at our local library, I have ordered it used from Better World Books as it is now out of print. I also discovered a sequel: "Merry Christmas, Princess Dinosaur!" and ordered that as well. I am sure she will be in heaven.
Good for a girl in her dinosaur phase, but the story is all over the place. You think it's a story about fitting in. Then is it a story about helping others? Wait, is this a story about a toy lost in the real world?

Truth is that even a girl excited about a story with a Dinosaur that is also a princess will start to wonder what the point is.
I know it's a picture book but there was not really a cohesive story line. First Princess Dinosaur gets into a fight with some toys but then she is having a tea party and then all of a sudden she is on a train. What? Slow down!
I adore Princess Dinosaur. I read this to my daughter when she was little but I still like to read it for myself. The illustrations are perfect and Princess Dinosaur is just awesome.

Princess Dinosaur is really a toy. Ohno! I gave away the surprise twist to the story!
