BERNARD MOST has written and illustrated many popular children's books, including The Cow That Went OINK, If the Dinosaurs Came Back, How Big Were the Dinosaurs?, Whatever Happened to the Dinosaurs?, and Where to Look for a Dinosaur. He lives in New York.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Most children would love to share a name with a prehistoric creature, and here it's as easy as finding their name within a dinosaur's moniker (as Pat in Apatasaurus)--or by changing part of a dinosaur name that rhymes with their own. Actually, there's no real story here but rather a series of cameos featuring a "terrible lizard" and a child. Stegosaurus, renamed Gregosaurus, is described as having huge plates on its back for protection and to make it appear larger to other meat-eating beasts. It so happens that Greg is a football player who is shown fully suited in gear that protects him and makes him look larger to opposing teams. Most's familiar style is playful and colorful without being too cartoonish. Dinosaurs in action are framed at the tops of the pages with their names and pronunciations above. Below are large-type, double-spaced text and the happy honored child. All the dinosaurs are represented again with their scientific names and pronunciations on the inside covers and endpapers. This book should be a hit with children, and it does present some scientific information. --Denia Lewis Hester, Dewey School, Evanston, IL
