No longer content with building, zooming, or even rescuing, the dinosaurs now have their sights set on something much, much bigger . . . the moon! Join our fearsome friends as they prepare for their cosmic journey: Is the rocket ready? Will the launch go smoothly? Can they make it to the moon? Another fast and furious adventure for anyone who loves dinosaurs and vehicles!
Words or phrases repeat in subsequent lines, resulting in stanzas that beg to be read aloud, such as “Astronaut dinosaurs riding / Riding on the bus / On the bus, to the giant rocket.” Dale surrounds her catchy, lilting narrative with intricate and brightly colored watercolor-and-pencil illustrations full of enthusiastic dinos and lots of vehicles for space travel, such as a command module and a moon buggy—to name a few. Beautifully designed, this is a fun read from beginning to end. —Booklist Online
