School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-2-A "lost" toy dinosaur causes an ugly rift between friends as one blames the other for its disappearance. The contretemps continues at school, but later Morgie discovers his younger brother had "borrowed" T-Rex as a bed companion. Embarrassed, he apologizes to Billy, and all is forgiven. (Morgie and family have golden-tan caninelike heads; Billy appears to be a white rabbit.) DePaola's simple text is geared to beginning readers, his softly colored signature illustrations have his distinctive appeal, and the inclusion of T-Rex guarantees an audience. A start off, perhaps, for classroom discussion, or a lesson about jumping to conclusions.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
