Review by School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-As siblings Olivia and Joel start dinner, an argument erupts regarding who has a better imaginary dinosaur. Both dinosaurs have a number of worthy and hilarious qualities, including X-ray vision and owning a personal ice cream van. Yet, the competition is squashed when Mom enters the picture with her very own dinosaur, a T-rex, who can eat a whole volcano! Her victory ends the debate, and the kids are left with nothing to do but finish their supper. True to the spirit of children's imaginations, this playful story is a quick and fun read. The author is a self-taught artist whose painted illustrations are large and bright, reflecting the larger-than-life feats Olivia and Joel create. Each new skill the dinosaurs acquire appears on a new page, against a white background, making them stand out and capture attention. The cartoonish font and silly title draw on the humor and children's perspective. Kids will love hearing this story read aloud, so they can begin their own friendly feud with their peers. VERDICT A creative and fun debut picture book.-Kaitlin Connors, Virginia Beach Public Library © Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
