KIRKUS REVIEW

Shea’s irrepressible hero returns—stubby, red and toothier than ever.

Dinosaur has faced tremendous obstacles in his first few years of growing up (Dinosaur vs. Bedtime, 2008; Dinosaur vs. the Potty, 2010). So far only two things have ever proven to be worthy opponents. Until now. On his way to one of his most favorite places—the library—Dinosaur meets new animal friends. He convinces each one, from a flock of tiny chicks to a shy turtle and a hopelessly sobbing owl, to loudly ROAR along with him. Dinosaur wins every time! (He is no bully though; his opponents are clearly enjoying this roaring game.) But upon reaching the library, Dinosaur is met with an excruciating task. He must be quiet … for an entire story. Hands clamped tightly over his mouth and eyes popping with exertion, Dinosaur worries. Can he do it? The power of a story wins! Observant readers will spot familiar characters amid Shea’s bold, expressive scrawls, and everyone will cheer the library’s success. Story time may have conquered Dinosaur, but with boisterous noise and boundless energy, Shea’s Dinosaur titles will never fail to be read-aloud hits.

Dinosaur wins again! (Just deny it if he ever asks.) (Picture book. 3-5)
