Praise

Kids will plunge into the whomping and chomping with glee, and they’ll understand a hero who means to be careful, but who ends up stomping all over things anyway.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Infused with lively, attention-grabbing yellows and cheerful, stimulating oranges to match Dinah’s mood, the book is filled with thick black outlines and chunky lettering… The book’s dominating horizontal line, as we watch Dinah stomp along the horizon, makes for compelling page turns, also matching the great energy of the book. It’s big, loud fun for rowdy, raucous toddlers. Mwah!
—Bookpage

Stein makes great use of fun onomatopoeia to punctuate a prehistoric tale modern parents know all too well — children making earnest efforts to learn a new skill only to achieve hilariously disastrous results. … [A] circle-time win for Stein, who’s proving to be a master at anthropomorphizing critters with perfectly overemphatic kid-like mannerisms.
