Praise

A delight for dinosaur devotees, with a rhyming text and repetitive structure that will make it a storytime winner as well.
—Kirkus Reviews

The lessons of Aesop’s fables are just as applicable in the Cretaceous as they are today, as Duddle demonstrates in a witty cautionary tale that boils down to “The Ankylosaurus Who Cried Wolf.” … Duddle’s digital illustrations create a rich prehistoric world with an almost sculptural depth, and his bug-eyed dinosaurs exude personality. Bouncy rhymes and a narrative propelled by alternating moments of terror and relief make for a lively, mischievous read.
—Publishers Weekly

Most kids will enjoy this raucous rhyming story. The full-bleed, earth-tone digital cartoons are appropriately exaggerated and fraught with tension without being frightening. A note at the end introduces the real and made-up creatures that appear in the story. Fans of dinosaurs and those who love action will enjoy this prehistoric romp.
—School Library Journal
