HASH(0xa740e588) out of 5 stars Pretty illustrations, poor grammar May 10 2012
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had higher hopes for this book. As it is geared towards children, I hoped for an error free book. Instead, there were spelling and grammar errors that I had to explain to my son. A good opportunity for learning, yes, but then he wondered how old the author was. Perhaps a quick revision with an editor would be helpful?

**** 5/21/12 ****

I noticed that this review was downvoted and that another, positive review was posted about 6 hours after this one went live. I see that the other reviewer seems to have all of the author's books. I'm so glad that she has enjoyed them so much and was able to leave so many 5 star reviews for her books. I see that she is also the author of children's books, which is a neat coincidence. That's the thing about books - some people like them and some people don't. For me, I buy hundreds of books for my kindle and ipad, so when I pay a few bucks for them, I don't expect greatness, but I do expect professional editing.

I feel like perhaps I should elaborate as the previous review was deemed "unhelpful." Comma use throughout the book has no consistency. For example, "I did Mom." "Well do something about it." versus using commas heavily in "I would have been upset, but I was too tired, and besides, he didn't destroy anything."

There are typos throughout, such as "soemthing" "riped" (rather than ripped) and occasionally an extra space like "I 'm".

The storyline is as follows. A child has a dinosaur follow him home. He asks mom if he can keep it and mom reluctantly agrees provided there is some responsibility. Chaos ensues, including a dish breaking session, a traumatized cat, a ripped to pieces backpack, middle of the night gargling and pantry destruction...

At the end, our protagonist admits his mistake and mom (who has the patience of a saint while waiting for her child to realize this) finds a local dinosaur breeder (one of many) to take his pet.

Now, of course it is fiction - however, in our family, we talk a lot about pets being for a lifetime and not supporting breeders. Not a huge deal, but if you are an animal adoption activist, I think this storyline will be off-putting.

So this is why my review was not glowing. I tried my best to be positive though, as any book takes an incredible amount of effort. I also hoped that my review of the typos might prompt the author to do a re-read on her next book or speak with her editor. I hope my further explanation serves to make this review more helpful.

My 3 boys, all different reading levels, enjoyed taking turns reading this book. Having pets of our own they liked discussing if the right choices were made for this type of pet. A good read.

HASH(0xa740e798) out of 5 stars My 7 yr old loved it March 17 2014

A.J. Cosmo has some really cute ideas! This story made my son want to read another and look for more like it. We also have Obvious Fish and The Monster that Ate Our Keys. Next up is The Truth Fairy. All by Cosmo. Recommend if you have young kids. My 7 yr old is in second grade and he likes that he gets 'reading minutes' for these whether I read them or he reads them.

My son loves dinosaurs so this story was great for him. Teaching responsibility as well as peeking his interest with characters he enjoys he stayed focused and listened to the whole story. Will look for more from this author.
HASH(0xa740ef90) out of 5 stars Can I Keep It? Pet Ownership Isn't All Fun! Are You Ready? July 27 2013
By James N Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My Pet Raptor is the tale of a boy who finds a raptor and asks his mum the famously used in movies and books question, can I keep it? She lets him and the reader follows the boy discovering that owning a pet is not all fun, and that if he lets the animal do whatever it wants such as chew up his bag, there's consequences. Basically the aim of the story is for kids upon completion to ask themselves if they really are ready to own a pet, even if they really want to own one. The raptor in this book behaves for the most part like a dog and the interactions between the raptor and the boy also emulate a canine and human master relationship. Besides responsibility the book also for some reason delves into the is it okay to smack in response to naughty behaviour, it did seem a little preachy at this stage and like we were talking about human parents and their children instead of raptors. I think the book would have been better without that scene.

The illustrations are pretty good as you'd expect from an A.J. Cosmo book, a bit small on some pages but overall nice.
