4.0 out of 5 stars My boys really enjoyed reading this book June 4 2012

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty illustrations, poor grammar May 10 2012
By Kristen - Published on Amazon.com

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars My 7 yr old loved it March 17 2014
By Clarissa in Texas - Published on Amazon.com

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story April 14 2014

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.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good for teaching pet responsibility. My pet raptor is almost a four star. Sept. 17 2014

I received a free kindle copy of My Pet Raptor by A.J. Cosmo from Amazon for fair review. It was almost a four star.

It is an easy learn to read story about learning responsibility for a pet. It's intended for first to fourth graders. The illustrations are really cute. There are great opportunities for appropriate noise making throughout the story. My favorite little boy really laughed when I demonstrated the half howling, half gargling noise that Rex made at the moon.

Rex, the raptor was noisy at night, was destructive (chewing up backpacks, breaking dishes, sleeping on top of clothing), ate too much & even tore up the carpet. Cleaning up after him was a full time job & it was exhausting. Could they keep him even if they couldn't get sleep? Could he fit into the family even if he chased Pookie the cat?

I recommend this for parents, grandparents, libraries & schools.
