When seven animals find out their home is going to be bulldozed to make way for a factory, they come up with a plan to protect it: they build a costume and pretend to be a dinosaur. When they get found out, the people decide not to tear down the woods because (SPOILER) they find out all the animals are endangered and decide to protect them.

A few problems with this book: there's a weird mix of make-believe and reality. I can imagine having a hard time trying to explain what's real and what's imaginary to a little kid. Also, the book says the snake is extinct, but it's obviously not if there's one living in the woods. It should've said the people THOUGHT he was extinct.

I'm giving this three stars because I really like the illustrations, but I'd only give the writing two.
