Wow. This is an impressively stupid book. In the grand tradition of Dick and Jane: "See me run. I run and run. See them come. They come and come." And then they all dig, unearthing the skeleton of a dinosaur, which proceeds to get up and chase them. ("What is this? It is big. It is mad.)

Perhaps I'm being too harsh. The illustrations are fine. The dinosaur thing is kind of funny. Perhaps it would be good for young ESL students. But even then, I think you can do better.

(Note: I received a free advance reading copy of this book from the publisher at an American Library Association Annual Conference. I was not required to write a positive review. Thank you, Holiday House!)
