Praise

Text and illustrations work beautifully together in this witty fantasy. . . . speech balloons alternate with narration to tell the story in a fresh, droll manner. In Cecil’s arresting oil paintings, the tawny orange dinosaur stands out boldly against slate blue or white backgrounds, and the unusual texture of the paint creates a distinctive effect. Brontorina makes a hugely sympathetic heroine.
—Booklist (starred review)

The frankly funny illustrations complement Howe’s understated text, resulting in a sweet, frothy story, complete with tutus and arabesques, for the little (and big) dreamer in everyone, lightheartedly demonstrating that the sky’s the limit, so think big!
—Kirkus Reviews

A humorous and inspiring tale… a satisfying story that adheres closely to its central message about overcoming obstacles.
—Publishers Weekly

A delightful story that reminds us to chase our dreams and to help others chase theirs, even if modifications are required
—Library Media Connection

Young readers will have a ball with James Howe’s story of a dinosaur with a big dream. The dancers include both boys and girls…Brontorina is perfect for a classroom visit or a bedtime story…The message remains en pointe: Go for it, even if you don t have the right build. Or the right footwear.
—Tampa Tribune

A heartwarming tale about holding onto your dreams and never giving up despite ridicule and disappointment Children and parents will love Brontorina’s charm and passion.
—Fort Worth Star­Telegram
