Fascinated with dinosaurs, Patrick imagines that at one time dinosaurs were great friends of people. "A fanciful explanation of the life and times of dinosaurs, as told by a boy to his older brother, this imaginative flight is a saurian delight." -- School Library Journal, starred review

About the Author:

Carol Carrick has written more than twenty-five well-received books for Clarion, including PATRICK'S DINOSAURS, one of the many books illustrated by her late husband, Donald Carrick. She lives in West Tisbury, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 Patrick, from Patrick's Dinosaurs (Clarion, 1983), is back to marvel children with his imagination. While he and his brother Hank rake leaves, Patrick unfolds the true life and times of dinosaurs. They were friends with people once, you see, picnicking and fishing, building houses, operating car wind-up (not fill-up) service stations and presenting carnival shows to bored humans. Patrick recounts the sad fact that people did not want to learn from the dinosaurs, as they were only interested in recess and lunch, so the dinosaurs left on a spaceship, keeping a celestial check on the people they miss so dearly. Carol Carrick's text masterfully understates Patrick's fanciful imagination and Hank's logical, yet respectfully teasing, perspective. Donald Carrick's ink and watercolor illustrations captivate. His Patrick clips the hedge into a saurian shape and sees only dinosaurs when he watches clouds; industrious, serious dinosaurs wear yellow hard hats on construction jobs; a stegosaurus munches watermelon while a woman sets up her telescope on his back. Leaf-raking scenes are in blues and greens, while the dinosaur pages make one gasp with glowing golden surprise. For sharing and laughing over together, or for independent reading, this superlative partnership of text and illustration will satisfy even the most passionate dinosaur buffs.
