Praise

★ “[Choldenko’s] knowing, understated storytelling and Santat’s warm, expressive spreads give full credence to the fears that weigh on kids, as well as the presences—both real and imagined—that can help alleviate them.”—Kirkus, starred review

“Choldenko excels in creating believable characters whose empathy and emotional quotients match their other successes. . . This works as a story about bravery, as well as a paean to dads.” —Booklist

“This is a modern story reminiscent of Dumbo and his “magic” feather that readers will enjoy as they explore the ideas of bravery, ability, and what lies inside each of us.”—School Library Journal

“With the rediscovery of Nick’s dino, his bravery returns as well, only this time, Nick isn’t the only one who knows his secret, and he knows deep down that all guys are afraid sometimes [. . . .] Dads get it: being brave takes work . . . and a dinosaur.”—Publishers Weekly
