Dinosaur Trouble book. Sometimes the most unlikely pairs make the best of friends. Set in Dinosaur times, it is a short story about young dinosaurs Nosy and Banty, making friends despite belonging to different dinosaur families. Throughout the story we see how the innocence and naivety of children often overlooks prejudices and racial discrimination in meeting each other and becoming friends and their fresh young minds can help defeat the historic evil in the world - in this case, Hack the Ripper (T-Rex).

I meant to keep this diary every day but I’ve been too upset. Even when I realized I was ready to lay some new eggs, I didn’t feel much better. Even when I realized I was ready to lay some new eggs, I didn’t feel much better hat I simply must tell you about it. This morning – it seems a lifetime ago! – I was wandering around yet again looking for a good egg-laying spot, when I heard a familiar crashing sound coming from the tall ferns. It sounded suspiciously like Τ Rex. But it wasn’t. It was a Megalosaurus – another of the awful, giant meat-eaters. Once again, my little legs went into action

'T. rex! T. rex! Run!' The terrible Tyrannosaurus rex is scaring all the dinosaur families that live on the Great Plain. Nosy, the little pterodactyl, and his great friend Banty, the apatosaurus, agree that T. rex has got to be stopped. But how? Luckily Nosy has a plan ...
  • A fun book! My three year old daughter loved having my husband read it to her!

  • My husband and I read this book aloud to our 4 year old. My husband and I didn't particularly like the story, but our dinosaur obsessed son loved it! I liked that it exposed him to a ton of new words and it held his attention.

  • My son, age 4, loves this book. We've read it together twice already. The dialogue is very funny, and the plot has enough twists and turns to keep the pages turning. He didn't find it too scary and really loved how the little dinosaurs used their brains to overcome the T. Rex. He also loved picking up the long words.

  • I bought this book for my toddler as a way to introduce 'chapter books' and it wasn't at all what I had expected based on the reviews I read. The dinosaur's names are difficult for even me to pronounce and the content at times can be a bit harsh. Truth be told we haven't even finished reading it, so perhaps it does get better...

  • This book is awful. In this book the mom dinosaurs are brilliant and skillful and the dad dinosaurs are lazy fools. The moms are constantly making up for the dad's inability to understand the situation.

    The book is gross. It lingers over descriptions of dinosaurs eating flies off dead dinosaur carcasses. The dinosaurs hang upside down and poop, and the poop narrowly misses their heads. Poop comes up again and again.

    The villain, a T Rex, eats baby dinosaurs, a fact the author apparently finds fascinating: "I wonder what wretched animal will die today to feed its digusting appetite."

    The story is fatuous and predictable. It's juvenile,and not in a good way. I had to stop reading it to my six year old halfway through. Do not buy.

  • Got this book because we are introducing longer "chapter books" to our 5- and 3-year-old. The 5-year-old likes dinosaurs, and we're also a fan of the Babe movies (based on King-Smith's other work,) so I thought it might be good. As another reviewer pointed out, the violence might be too much for a sensitive child. I was not averse to the idea of herbivores tangling with a T-Rex, but what I didn't like was the gore in the descriptions of these encounters. Completely unnecessary. Found myself skipping over and changing lots of lines. Also, there was a lot of talk about pooping. And not in a funny way - more crass. I can see how the story attempts to promote vocabulary growth. Perhaps for a young reader in older grades (3rd/4th grade) this book would be alright. There is quite a lot of dialogue that sort of gets lost when read aloud. It is not appropriate as a read-aloud for preschool/kindy-aged kids. Even though 5-year-old seems to like it (with my omissions of various dialogue and passages), I am taking this off of our shelf.

  • Most of the other reviewers have covered the primary shortcomings of the book already, but I wanted to add that the overall tone is just not fun. The parents frequently make narrative asides in which they cast scorn on their mates; readers are often (often!) reminded that the T-Rex loves to eat baby dinosaurs; and the two toddler dinosaurs end up killing the T-rex in the end in a way that just isn't fun to read to young children.

    Our son is not squeamish; we watch grown-up nature shows and dinosaur shows frequently. For this story, the gore and human sniping placed in the context of characters that talk and express feelings is a bit much.

  • This book is just the right reading level for my son at the end of his second grade year. He is ready to move on from The Magic Tree House books, and this book has just enough new vocabulary and pictures for him.

    PROS: Introduces vocabulary in an interesting way. Teaches that you may like those who are different from you once you get to know them.
    CONS: Kid/baby dinosaurs disobey parents. Father dinosaurs are portrayed as unintelligent. T-Rex attack and murder scenes are way too scary for my son.

    After reading most of the way through this book, my 7-year-old son refused to read the rest of it. He is generally sensitive to scary scenes, but usually will continue if I read ahead and tell him what to expect. However, he found this story line to be too frightening and was too scared to finish.
    Kids who are not sensitive will probably do just fine with this book and may even enjoy reading about the T-Rex getting crushed by a huge tree.
