Publisher's Description

Gobble, gobble, munch, and crunch: watch the pages disappear!  Five hungry dinosaurs--from mighty little Microraptor to colorful Carnotaurus--sink their teeth into this tasty novelty book, created with the American Museum of Natural History and Caldecott-honor winner Steve Jenkins. Kids can count along as the dinosaurs take bite-sized chunks out of each page. The number of bites matches the counting number on each spread! Fun facts about the dinosaurs--and what they liked to eat--appear at the end, along with a listing of dinosaur details from 1-10.

Publishers Weekly

Jenkins’s characteristically detailed collages take on the ever-popular subject of dinosaurs in a board book created in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Things begin promisingly, as different dinosaurs take jagged “bites” out of each spread, counting up to five. Numbers six through 10, however, are deployed in a rush on a single page (“6 hungry dinosaurs are chewing up this book! 7 colors on this page are waiting to be gobbled up”); closing pages offer details on dinosaurs’ nonbook eating habits and a second opportunity to count to 10. Simultaneously available: Spot the Animals: A Life-the-Flap Book of Colors. Ages 3–7. (Oct.) 2012 Reed Business Information
