*Review* A Very Dinosaur Birthday by Adam Wallace


Genre: Children's 4-10 years
Published: June 20, 2023
Pages: 40

Your family will roar with laughter at this funny read-aloud from Adam Wallace, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the How to Catch series. What if dinosaurs showed up at your birthday party? From prehistoric presents to games crashing out of control and your snacks going extinct, it's a dino disaster!

Dinosaurs are big, and strong, and scary, and farty,

So do you really want them coming to your birthday party?

Watch out! Birthdays will never be the same with this silly picture book adventure featuring lively rhymes and hilarious illustrations!

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This was a cute rhyming story about how dinosaurs would affect a child's birthday party if they weren't extinct and attended. Although the effects were largely negative, like an anklyosaurus playing pin the tail on the donkey would also bust through the wall like the Kool-aid man, some of them were positive, like being the best at tag by riding a velociraptor. 

The illustrations for this one were really fun. They were also very bright and colorful with some nice shading, especially on the dinosaurs. This is a book I could read a few times without problem because it really was a fun read for a children's book. Overall I give this book 4.36 out of 5 stars. - Katie
