Can a T. rex pirouette and jeté on a ballet stage?…Cecil’s dappled art provides a humorous contrast between the hefty dinosaurs and the stick-figure humans. His choice of colors for the dinos—textured blue for Tyrone and a bright orange for Brontorina—helps them fill the pages to overflowing. Tyrone’s softly edged outline, so dramatically unlike his prehistoric ancestors’, gives him definite cuddly appeal. Brontorina first appeared in her own eponymous tale (2010), in which she made it quite clear that dinosaurs need outdoor studios. Yes, dreams can come true—even if you are a dancing dinosaur.
…Cecil’s precise, textured oils have Tyrone often poised on tiptoe or balanced in an arabesque pose, and the spread with kids, dinos, and, yes, cows dancing away at Madame Lucille’s is especially giggleworthy. This is an easy pick for a dance-themed storytime or a discussion of finding one’s interests and supporting others in their search
