Never Follow a Dinosaur

Never Follow a Dinosaur
By Alex Latimer
Joe and Sally find dinosaur tracks and try to deduce what is going on--when the tracks are deep, they realize it must be a heavy dinosaur; when there is a pile of leaves on the tracks, they decide the dinosaur must have hit his head on an overhanging branch, etc. When the tracks just mysteriously end, they can't figure out how the dinosaur just disappeared--so they decide to set a trap. But will they catch their quarry...or will he catch them?

Really fun book. The illustrations are cute and engaging, and it's fun to see what Joe and Sally deduce about their dinosaur. The text is fun, as each deduction adds to the previous (a very hungry dinosaur, a very hungry, heavy dinosaur, etc.), and the twist ending will make kids laugh. Although there are tons of dinosaur picture books, this one stands out.

 I read a copy through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

4 stars.
