Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—A baby dinosaur emerges from the sea and goes on a rampage across New York City, tracking seaweed and dead fish all over the tourists and setting fire to every ship in the harbor. His tail the size of a small planet, Destructosauraus is chastised by the narrator for his lack of self-control and for his sassy attitude, much like a mother would speak to a wild child. And in the end, readers discover that the lonely creature is simply looking for his teddy bear. Once he finds it, he retreats to the sea, softening the tone of the narrator and even hugging her. But while the narrator instructs Destructosauraus to help clean up the mess he's made, the creature just heads back to the sea from where he came. Enter King Kluck, a giant chicken, and, much to the narrator's surprise, instead of helping, the destruction continues. Big bright art outlined in bold black lines brings the young dinosaur's search for his toy to life, and his expressions clearly display his determination and frustration. This over-the-top tale that pushes the limits of the narrator's authority will delight readers.—Jennifer Miskec, Longwood University, Farmville, VA --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

The author of Creepy Carrots (2012) makes a nod to movie monsters in his latest, featuring a child in the midst of a tantrum who becomes an oversize, havoc-wreaking dinosaur. Destructosaurus tracks in seaweed and dead fish, burps flames, topples bridges and skyscrapers, roars, and tosses buildings about before locating his missing teddy bear, the reason for his rage. The text, a monologue delivered by his caregiver, consists of the mostly calm (but sometimes sarcastic) language used by exasperated adults trying to diffuse an angry outburst. Tankard’s cartoon-style art is the perfect foil for Reynolds’ seemingly rational text. His humorous illustrations feature boldly outlined characters, vivid colors, and rich backgrounds. The compositions are often cluttered (apropos to the mayhem depicted) but Destructosaurus (and the child’s perspective) remain clear focal points. Although the text may leave toddlers restless, this will strike a chord with older preschoolers and their caregivers who are experienced with these tirades. Pair with Jane Yolen’s How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad? (2013). Preschool-Kindergarten. --Kay Weisman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
