PreSchool-Grade 2-- Laura, an imaginative little girl whose best friend is a small crocodile visible only to her, digs up a strange stone in her garden. Her father, busy at his computer, identifies it as a fossil, which Laura is led to believe is a dinosaur bone. She carries her treasure everywhere and soon begins to see dinosaurs lurking in the yard, skating in the supermarket, peeping in the school window, and clumping through the museum. However, when she finds out her fossil is only an ancient snail, her exciting pursuers disappear at once. Her crocodile is then transformed into a tiny dinosaur, and she is happy once again. Appropriately whimsical and amusing ink-and-watercolor cartoon illustrations fill the bright, busy scenes. The benign dinosaurs appear in eye-popping colors such as magenta, lime green, and butter yellow. A lively narrative, clever twists, and an appreciation of the joys of make-believe make this a good read-aloud. --Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
