KIRKUS REVIEW

Dinosaurs driving racecars, dinosaurs riding bicycles—even a whole Tyrannosaurus Rex family tucked into the sleeper car of a passenger train. Where could all of these dinosaurs be going? To the dinosaur reunion, a 40-million-year reunion to be exact. The sometimes rhyming text offers an amusing look at how dinosaurs might actually live among humans, but it's the art that brings this tale to life. Advertisements for Herb Ivore and Sons Expert Gardening service, Stegoland, and drinks offered in convenient ten-gallon cartons are some of the sight gags for the right eye. While the catchy (though often clumsy) writing and clever illustrations offer an amusing take on a familiar subject, the story ultimately goes flat, leaving it merely another dinosaur book. Drive on by unless desperate for another dinosaur fix. (Picture book. 3-5)
