From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2-In this Creation fable, God makes all dinosaurs happy herbivores. After 150 million years, however, a sudden outbreak of possessiveness leads to rampant greed and selfishness. Dinosaurs stop sharing, and some become carnivores. God decides to end their reign (via earthquakes and volcanoes) and try again-with a smarter creature able to reflect on problems instead of reacting violently. The message is clear-and so is the image of God as a punitive Enforcer. The illustrations feature colored clay figures posed against painted backdrops or in clay landscapes. Static and amateurish, they lack even the ``camp'' appeal of Claymation. This book is no competition for the many stylish and wisdom-filled children's books available today.-Patricia Dooley, formerly at University of Washington, Seattle
