Field Guide to the Grumpasaurus

We rated this book:


Field Guide to the Grumpasaurus by Edward Hemingway is a fun, humorous book about a dinosaur species called the Grumpasaurus. I think the book is trying to relate to how we look and act when we get mad. The book describes the frustrated dinosaur’s physical features and characteristics: “Its VERY LARGE mouth hollers like there’s no tomorrow.” I really liked the author’s painted cartoon-like illustrations. The pages look like they are from a spiral notebook of a field biologist. The mythical Grumpasaurus is the only character in the story that has a name. There are two more characters though, a black cat and a woman whose face you never see. In only a fraction of the pictures is he content. The rest of the time he is frustrated and upset. I like this book because it was funny and silly. I think that the book would be good for ages three to six. All kids would like this book because it is funny. And I think parents would like this because it teaches kids that everyone gets mad and has tantrums.
