From Publishers Weekly:

"Dinosaur two legs / dinosaur four / up there in the air /dinosaur soar" are the opening lines of Otto's ( That Sky, That Rain )somewhat meager rhymed text. The creatures are first seen involved ininnocent activities--swimming and fishing. Suddenly threeseedy-looking dinosaurs appear, sneak into a house and make off with aglittering necklace. The dino cops give chase, and finally capture thevillains. The closing spread shows a daddy dinosaur reading a bedtimestory (entitled Three Robbers ) to a tucked-in little dino: "goodnight dinosaur / sleep tight dinosaur / dream sweet / dinosaurdreams." Though the story is entertaining, it is Hurd's ( Mama Don'tAllow ; The Pea Patch Jig ) pictures--as imaginative and humorous asever--that carry the book. Whether good guys or gangsters, hisdinosaurs are entirely engaging. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 --The fun here is in the visual depiction of many types of brilliantly colored anthropomorphic dinosaurs who are slithering, slinking, flopping, and thumping through activities: chatting on the street corner; surfing and sunning at the beach; deep-sea fishing; robbing a house, executing a daring escape, and being captured by dino-police; and falling asleep indoors and out. All these events are loosely and not too logically integrated into a book a dinosaur mother reads to her child snuggled in bed. The minimal text is stylishly integrated into cartoon ink-and-watercolor illustrations filled with lively swirling lines, humorous asides, and feverish action. Children should love these eyecatching events.
