KIRKUS REVIEW

So you think dinosaurs are extinct? On the contrary, avers Edwards, in the guise of a young researcher—they’re still around, though enjoying a very different lifestyle these days. Offering as proof a set of gleefully ornate “photographs” featuring oversized, gaily patterned dinosaurs sipping tea at an outdoor café, energetically playing fossilball, mincing down the street in size 800-Triple-E high heels and other pursuits, he observes that they “live in high-rises and like the night-life,” “floss with garden hoses,” “love haunting, romantic songs about tasty plants, damp soil and uprooted trees,” and, in conclusion, “really ARE clever.” Yes, clever enough, as it turns out, to filch this report and to set the Dinosaur Intelligence Agency after its author. Read with caution, and warn young dinophiles to do the same. (Picture book. 6-8)
