About this title


In this story, loosely based on that of Cinderella but featuring dinosaurs, the Duke falls in love with Dinorella when she rescues him from the dreaded deinonychus at the Dinosaur Dance

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3?If a dour weimaraner can portray Cinderella in William Wegman's book (Hyperion, 1993), why not a fuchsia dinosaur? Following the silly sibilants in Some Smug Slug (HarperCollins, 1996), Edwards takes her readers way back?it looks like the '50s?for a daffy "d" diversion where Dinorella, an apatosaurus, waits hand and foot (so to speak) on her two indolent, hadrosaur sisters. Fairydactyl saves the day and Dinorella heads off to Duke Dudley's Den. Once again, Cole's acrylics nearly guarantee that this picture book will be whisked off the shelves. The cartoon dinosaurs with human expressions are hilarious and the throwaways?one of the big-finned cars sports "X-TNKT/Pangea" vanity plates?will keep even adults on their toes. Edwards's dialogue is a bit trying, but she rewrites the Grimms' tale just enough to make it clever. Dinorella is a fun way to learn a little about fairy tales (with a delightful twist) and alliterative language.?John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX

Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
