Dino Bites!

Dino Bites! illus. by author. 32p. Boxer Bks. Mar. 2013. Tr $16.95. ISBN 978-1-907967-50-4.
PreS-K—Three dinosaurs are looking for lunch. The smallest one eats a bee. The next largest one eats her, and the biggest dinosaur eats him. But rumbling goes on in all those stomachs, ending in a comical surprise. Bright, vivid background colors saturate and bleed off the pages. The four goofy-looking characters are done in a lighter palette, almost pastels, causing them to pop. The spare text is in large, black print; there is one sentence per page or just a word, for example, "Bite!" for illustrative emphasis. This cumulative story will be a storytime favorite, enjoyed in a one-on-one setting, and a hit with beginning readers.—Anne Beier, Hendrick Hudson Free Library, Montrose, NY
