Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

School is no match for Shea's rambunctious, ever-confident red dino, starring in his fifth picture book. This is a hero who brings a winner-takes-all attitude toward making friends, playing dress-up, and craft projects alike: "Roar! Sprinkle! Roar! Glue! Dinosaur wins!" shouts Dinosaur, as Shea draws him in manic brushstrokes covered in googly eyes. But when it's time to clean up, Dinosaur looks more like a frightened salamander than a fearless reptile. Shea's illustrations are as unruly and imaginative as ever in this pitch-perfect, egocentric take on living (school) life to the max. Ages 3–5. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (June) [Page ].

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-Gr 1—Dinosaur is embarking on a new experience: school. Shea's collages are bold, vivid, and laugh-out-loud funny. His cartoon style is at times reminiscent of The Powerpuff Girls and The Ren & Stimpy Show yet is uniquely his own. Kids will appreciate the humor and Dinosaur's confidence as he faces off against some familiar situations. This is an excellent read-aloud that becomes interactive as the story builds. As an added bonus, if you look closely, you can spot Buddy and the Bunnies from Shea's previous book. Add this title to your cart, and your patrons and students will be sure to cheer.—Krishna Grady, Darien Library, CT [Page 60]. (c) Copyright 2014.

Loving everything about his first day of preschool, from meeting new friends and dressing up in play clothes to doing arts-and-crafts and playing musical instruments, Dinosaur feels unsure about the challenges of clean-up time before discovering the power of friends working together. 50,000 first printing.
