Such are the trembling sounds of the gigantic dinosnores. Not everyone knows that the earth used to be made up of one huge supercontinent –– until the loud snores of the dinosaurs caused the land to quake and split!
Kelly DiPucchio's fun and boisterous take on a page out of history is brought to life in Ponder Goembel's colorful, fantastic world of flying pterodactyls and rumbling brontosauruses.

Kindergarten-Grade 3–The dinosaurs are getting ready for bed, making all the necessary preparations: "They bathed, and brushed, and fluffed their ferns/around the dino site.../then laid their horns and spikes to rest/and kissed their eggs goodnight." Once cuddled under their various quilts and blankets, they all begin to snore. There are "bronto-booms, tricera-cries, raptor-rumbles, stego-sighs," etc. The noise becomes so raucous that it causes tumultuous seas and volcanic eruptions, and eventually the continent splits in two and drifts apart. The verse flows smoothly and contains some clever wordplay, but it is Goembel's art that steals the show. All of the necessary plates, spikes, and horns are there, but these brightly colored dinos are downright endearing as they curl up on pillows festooned with teddy bears or ducks, a claw or two thrown protectively over a sleeping baby. The detailed acrylic paintings are rich in texture but have clean, crisp lines that are pleasing to the eye. Pair this with Jane Yolen's How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? (Scholastic, 2000) for a dino-mite storytime.–Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
