Description
Walking past the pet store window, a little boy discovers the best pet ever: a fully grown Triceratops. In this wry satire of pet ownership for readers 4 to 7, the boy teaches his dinosaur to fetch, roll over, and play dead, although on a stormy night the massive creature cowers in the bedroom. In his watercolor and pencil illustrations, George O'Connor creates a Triceratops that is as cute as a puppy, and this room-sized pet is adorable here as she tries to fit into a dog house, digs for (dinosaur) bones, unhappily takes a bath in a tiny tub, and menaces the mailman.

"Tongue stuffed firmly in cheek, O'Connor lets his premise go positively nuts in the pictures while keeping the text understated for maximum irony."Kirkus Reviews

"Dinosaurs and fantasies about a perfect pet are both topics loaded with kid appeal, and this picture book, which combines the two, is a real charmer. ... Rendered with thick-lined pen strokes and bright watercolors, the illustrations have a cartoonlike feel that will invite peals of laughter from the younger set yet are artful, imbued with a sophistication that adults will appreciate."School Library Journal
