How to Care for Your T-Rex is a must-have for all pet T-Rex owners (Written by Ken Baker and illustrated by Dave Coverly).
"The author uses the responsibility of pet care to deliver fun dino facts...in this super silly story.
Watercolor cartoon illustrations follow the two friends from sunrise to sunset...
VERDICT Useful for those with pets or those who love funny dinosaur stories. (School Library Journal)
"In this humorous how-to guide, Baker (Old MacDonald Had a Dragon) takes readers through a day of caring for one enormous pet… Ink-and-watercolor illustrations by Coverly (Night of the Living Shadows) playfully depict excited kids and their less-than-thrilled adult counterparts alongside the adorably enormous dinosaur, and text in speech bubbles… adds to the comic effect." (Publishers Weekly)
"Baker offers general guidance on how to keep a dino-pet (or many other sorts) fed, clean, and well-behaved . . . In loosely drawn cartoon scenes the illustrator tucks an inconspicuously diverse cast of small human figures--the children excited, the grown-ups mildly dismayed--around a humongous green Tyrannosaurus rex. A playful twist on an ever popular theme." (Kirkus)
"In this mix of facts and comedic elements is a story that is fun for all ages. The story line is cleverly crafted and heightens the effect of each picture... Baker uses humorous events but also includes real facts that provide a fun learning experience for all ages. There is much here that is certain to become a child’s favorite." (Children's Book & Media Review)
