About the Author:
Julia writes children’s
stories for digital and traditional publication. Her stories span the
spectrum of humor, fantasy, and edutainment in rhyme and in prose.
Julia’s background in elementary education affords her the opportunity
to be in touch with what children want to read about and what makes them
giggle. Julia collaborates with some of the leading artists in the
world of children’s literature. Julia is also a designer of educational
adjuncts for children’s literature, and has worked with such notable
publishing houses as Penguin Young Readers.
I have purchased several of Julia Dweck’s books over the past few months. My children really enjoy them. This one in particular is a lot of fun to read. Other than a couple of instances, the writing flows well and is entertaining. There is even a page at the end of the book with step by step instructions on how to draw a cartoon dinosaur.
I read this with my five year old and she loved it. She especially loved the illustrations. The dinosaurs are personified and can be seen doing funny things in most of the pictures. She also really enjoyed the Fun Facts at the very end of the book.
