In his trademark playful, pun-laden style, Douglas Florian turns his attention to dinosaurs in a witty and satisfying volume of paired poems and paintings. A Tyrannosaurus rex plugged into an ipod and a back-scratching Baryonyx are among the imaginative mixed-media images Florian has rendered to accompany twenty poems full of delight. Florian’s brisk, rapid-fire rhymes offer a humorous look at the inhabitants of the dinosaur age from Triassic to Jurassic to Cretaceous. A “Glossarysaurus” provides factual information on the dinosaurs that are the basis for each poem/painting pair. (Ages 4–8)
