Review from The Witchia Eagle

Dinosaur neon in a window of Nature’s Own, 
a new venue carrying my book in Fort Collins.

The Wichita Eagle on published this review of my book today.
Some books are charming; others are flat-out fun. ” How to Raise a Dinosaur,” by Natasha Wing and illustrated by Pablo Bernasconi (Running Press, ages 4-8, $16.95), is hilarious!
When looking for a pet, you can consider “mice and horses and cats and dogs,” but the author encourages you to seriously consider getting a dinosaur. Of course, there are some important things to consider: like the size of your yard and whether you want a meat-eater or a plant-eater.
Wing writes a zany story. She suggests going to a dinosaur shop to find a good pet, but stresses the need for play toys and proper vet care. Bernasconi’s illustrations brightly fill each page and feature flaps and cutouts of what’s going on behind the scenes.
Her closing advice: “Above all, give your dinosaur lots of love . . . or it will . . . (STOP! He gave a way the ending, but I won’t!)
