School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3 Two titles that feature that favorite old cat, along with Thing One, Thing Two, and Sally and Dick. Both are told in rhythmic couplets. Di-no-saur introduces fossils using a museum as the setting. "With a club for a tail/and a back full of spikes,/this dino was strong /like an army tank. Yikes!" The dinosaurs' names are given, as well as their physical traits. Fish uses a deep-sea sub to take readers through five undersea zones, illustrating the types of fish that would be found at each depth. Even after close examination, the pictures cannot be easily distinguished from those drawn by Dr. Seuss. A good choice for kids who still like their nonfiction told in story form and laced with humor. Sharon R. Pearce, Geronimo Public School, OK (c) Copyright 2010.
