Synopsis

Flip-o-saurus by Britta Drehsen

By turning over the flaps of this clever book, you can put together 1,000 imaginary dinosaurs, like the Stegodocus, the Oviplosaurus, or the Diploraptops. Each dinosaur has fascinating information about its head, body, and tail? so you can make your own Flip-o-saurus and see what it can do!

Reviews

Gr 1-3? Moments of entertainment may be provided by this oversize, cut-page gallery that invites children to mix and match the heads, bodies, and tails of 10 dinosaurs. Brief descriptive comments at the base of each flap offer further opportunity for hilarity: the Diplo-Thyo-Ryx, for instance, announces that My neck is twenty feet long,

The simple but clever design of this book splits each cardboard page into three segments, chopping 10 different dinosaurs into fronts, middles, and backs to be mixed and matched at will. Their names and attributes also get divided up (e.g., ending in ? -tops means a creature would have a ? short, heavy tail ), but this should be taken more as ways to come up with wacky-sounding names than scientific insights. It's hard not to foresee dino-crazy kids having oodles of fun with this book, arguing endlessly over the relative merits of the Diplooptesaurus versus the Tyrannoploryx. Grades 1-3. ? Booklist

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
