Book Description

April 9 2009
Dinosaurs run, boom, shake, and shudder their way to the "sludgy old swamp" and rock the night away. "[A] jazzy rhyming picture book.... [T]he thought of the Jurassic monsters transformed into toe-tappin' twirlers makes for great fun." - Publishers Weekly

Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-In a kinetic and goofy rhyming story, various denizens of the dinosaur world gather to join in a noisy, wild dance. This is another successful read-stamp-shout-giggle-sing-aloud from the author-illustrator duo who created Down by the Cool of the Pool (Orchard, 2002). This title shares with its predecessor an ever-increasing frenzy until the final few pages, when the "rompers drift together/and tumble in a heap-/`til finally the dinosaurs/are all fast asleep." From the swoop and "Eeeeeek!" of the pteranodon and the tail-thumping "Thwack! Thwack! Thwack!" of the brontosaurus (kids will no doubt offer its proper name) to the high-kicking "Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!" of the T. rex, each animal presents a fine opportunity for vocal and physical silliness that will be welcome wherever blood-stirring activity is needed. The colorful, eye-popping illustrations are sure to entice, and the recurring appearance of two small furry mammalians, while inaccurate from a natural history standpoint, provide a wry counterpoint to the action. A caveat for read-alouds: many of these names-deinosuchus, deinonychuses, and even styracosaurus-will not trip off the tongue without a fair amount of practice.

From Booklist

PreS. "Shake, shake, shudder . . . near the sludgy old swamp. The dinosaurs are coming. Get ready to romp." A neon-bright Brontosaurus, a dancing Deinosuchus, and other raucous dinos gather at the swamp for a wild, earth-pounding party in this exuberant picture book. Mitton's gleeful rhymes introduce dinosaur species as they rumble and boogie across the spreads in irresistible, color-saturated cartoonlike artwork that shows the humor and farce of the giant beasts shaking their scales and tails. The book ends with a nighttime scene of sleeping dinosaurs that's perfect for bedtime reading: "Now the only noise in the deep of the night is dinosaur-snoring 'til the next day's light." It's sure to be a big hit at story hours, too; expect young listeners to jump up and add their own wriggles and shakes to the dinosaur party. Gillian Engberg

5.0 out of 5 stars Dinosaurumpus! March 12 2004
I bought this book as a gift for my nephew on his 3rd birthday.
It's proven a big hit with him!
But his brother, my 18 month old nephew, is ALSO choosing it!
My sister and brother-in-law think my book selections are great.
Thanks to the reviews here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Aug. 31 2003
My 3 yr old loves this book too. He can actually recite it by heart- dinosaur names and everything. We also have Dazzling Diggers and I just realized today they are written by the same person- prompting me to come look at Amazon for more Mitton books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dinosaurumpus is very good! Feb. 16 2003
By A Customer
My teacher read this to us at school. Every single page of that book is good. Dinosaurs play really loudly. I was a little bit scared the first time I heard it, because the T-rex ran out. But now i am not scared anymore and it is REALLY fun to read.

My young daughter adores this book and I even still enjoy reading it to her for the millionth time! The rhyming verses are cleverly compiled and so much fun. The illustrations are cute and funny. Great for toddlers, preschoolers and beyond!

5.0 out of 5 stars My 3 year old LOVES this book April 18 2003
By Alyssa
This book is adorable. The pictures are colorful, the text rhymes and the story is simple but enticing. We enjoy this book almost every night these days. Some of the dinosaur names are hard to say, but we still love it!
