Review:

Danny and his pet dinosaur have been delighting children since 1958--almost the Jurassic Age to today's preschooler. There's a reason for that. To adults, this dinosaur, so different from the scary guys in Spielberg-land, may seem a bit of a wimp, but he, his friend Danny, the kids in their neighborhood, and the reassuring stories of their simple adventures, are a gentle introduction to the dinosaur universe.

In fact, as a review copy of this reissue lay on my desk, a very grown-up 17-year-old wandered over and remarked "Danny and the Dinosaur. Cool. I remember him. Those books were rad."

Rad indeed. This time author-illustrator Syd Hoff takes us along as Danny and his unnamed companion go off to sleep-away camp. The big guy fits right in; nobody even minds when he wins a race with a single step.

He does his part, though. When the campers go boating, "The children rowed little boats. Danny rowed the dinosaur." When they get tired on a hike, the whole group and counselor Lana hitch a ride home on his back.

Nope, it's not much of a story. But from the arrival at camp to the last goodnight at lights-out, Danny and his dinosaur try new things, help each other out, and generally behave like pals. If a kid and a prehistoric creature can do it, kids know they can, too. (For ages 3 and younger)

About the Author:

Syd Hoff was born and raised in New York City. He studied at the National Academy of Design and sold his first cartoon to The New Yorker when he was eighteen. He eventually became one of the most original and beloved authors and illustrators of children's books. Mr. Hoff wrote more than fifty books for children, including the I Can Read titles Danny and the Dinosaur, Oliver, and Sammy the Seal.
