Show your passport, Mr Dinosaur

Canadian Dinosaurs
Kelsey
2003

Thanks to a librarian friend, here is a book on Canadian dinosaurs (as opposed to those pesky American Dinos). I am imagining  a few Canadian Dinos taking in some Tunnel Bar-B-Q, hitting a casino or strip club, and then crossing over to catch a Red Wings game in Detroit. (I know Americans in Detroit do this, so I am only assuming the traffic goes both ways.) How do those tiny arms hold the passport?

Before anyone gets upset, this book is NOT awful! I loved the layout, pictures and information. I particularly like that they provided information about the particular digs and museums in Alberta. I can’t wait to plan a vacation to Dinosaur Provincial Park.  My only gripe is that it is getting a bit ripe in age and maybe a newer edition is in order.  One of my regular kids always says you can never have too many dinosaur books. That kid is absolutely right.

Submitter: This little gem was shoved in the middle of the fiction section at my middle school library. Not only is it horribly out dated, but I’m pretty sure the target audience in this book isn’t urban middle schoolers, so I’m not sure how it ended up in fiction instead of in the “to weed” pile, where it belongs.

Holly: Good catch, Submitter! This one has “gone to the dogs.”

(See what I did there?)
