Review for A Very Dinosaur Birthday

Review for A Very Dinosaur Birthday

A Very Dinosaur Birthday Adam Wallace , Christopher Nielsen, Dinosaurs, Party, Birthday, Yellow, Colourful, Picture Book, Children's BooksI received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

Well, this just didn’t work for me. Well, in parts, I mean there were things I liked, but for most it didn’t.

I thought this would be a very fun book about a kid having a birthday party with fun things happening with dinosaurs. Instead we get a party that is absolutely RUINED and CRASHED by dinosaurs. They fart and gas you all around. They break your stuff. They wreck your games. They ruin the cake. They ruin and destroy your gifts. And I could just go on with all the lists. It was all very frustrating to read because I just wanted to have the dinosaurs and humans get along and I found the dinosaurs just WAY to horrible and mean and terrible. I am frankly not even sure what the point was of it all. To show dinosaurs are mean? Some analogy or whatever the name is for being naughty? I don’t know.

What I did like? The art was really fun, I loved the colours and I especially loved how the dinosaurs were drawn. In the good old fashioned way. I know, I know everyone is drawing feathers now, but I am just not of the chicken dinosaurs so this was a delight. To see a good raptor and not the tiny chicken it is these days. BLESS!

And the ending turned out to be quite nice as well.

But yeah, all in all, not my thing. 2 stars for the fab illustrations and the fun ending.

Star rating, 2 stars
