Once upon a time, there were three hungry Dinosaurs: Papa Dinosaur, Mama Dinosaur . . . and a Dinosaur who happened to be visiting from Norway. One day—for no particular reason—they decided to tidy up their house, make the beds, and prepare pudding of varying temperatures. And then—for no particular reason—they decided to go . . . someplace else. They were definitely not setting a trap for some succulent, unsupervised little girl. Definitely not!

Willems' style is familiar and easy to look at. His years storyboarding for animation were well spent--it's a big strength. It's the silly James Marshall-type moments that get me with this book. The Norway gag was so random, and it made me laugh. I enjoyed it when the dinosaur house was made to scal...
Gave this one to Lil Girl for Christmas; and we laughed a lot when we read it together later. I love Mo Willems because he has a fabulous sense of humor (and, he has the honor of being the first author Lil Girl met in person - and got a High Five from - and the first autograph either of us every c...
