Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—Tina Saurus Rex is competing in the Miss Dinosaur pageant with a handful of other dinosaur ladies. Unfortunately, Tina seems to have a bit of a temper problem as the participants are reminded again and again to "Beware… Tina has to win." While she does in fact get the crown in the end, she also seems to have learned a lesson in friendship… sort of. The rhyming phrases become slightly clunky as the story progresses, and kids might be confused about what is actually happening to all of the disappearing dinosaurs. "It's talent time. They must prepare./But where are Patty and Stef, oh where?" The digital illustrations have a soft dreamlike feel and are large enough for group sharing. Since dinosaurs are always in demand and the approach here is unique, this book could be considered as a supplemental purchase for libraries.—Brooke Newberry, La Crosse Public Library, WI --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"a dinosaur book for tiara-wearing, dress-up-loving girls...stands a good chance of broadening the perspective of dress-up fans and dinosaur fans alike, blurring traditional gender boundaries along the way."  --Jen Robinson's Book Page


"Tina may win the crown after she scares off the other contestants, but her true prize is a new friend in this rhyming picture book." --The Seattle Times


"Sayres writes a sweet, rhyming anti-diva tale for children ages 5-7, enhanced by charming illustrations, which are appropriately very large and vibrantly colorful."--Brandeis Magazine

"Take a bunch of gorgeous dinosaurs, enter them in a beauty pageant... Surprisingly, the strongest contender is possibly not the most beautiful, but she does have the largest number of very sharp teeth." --my friend lucy (One year, 365 picture books)
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Brianna Caplan Sayres used to tell her second graders, &quot;When I grow up, I'm going to be a writer.&quot; &quot;But you are grown up, Mrs. Sayres,&quot; her students would protest. Well, Brianna is still not quite sure she's grown up, but she has grown into a writer. She is proud to be the author of the bestselling WHERE DO DIGGERS SLEEP AT NIGHT? series (Random House) illustrated by Christian Slade. Brianna is also extremely excited about her upcoming picture books about outer space, including ASTEROID GOLDBERG: PASSOVER IN OUTER SPACE (Intergalactic Afikoman) illustrated by Merrill Rainey and NIGHT NIGHT, CURIOSITY (Charlesbridge) illustrated by Ryan O'Rourke. Brianna now lives in her hometown, Seattle, Washington, where she and her husband are kept busy by their two future astronauts. You can visit Brianna at her playground on the web at www.briannacaplansayres.com .
