Count-A-Saurus

Nancy Blumenthal, Author, Robert Kaufman, Illustrator Four Winds $15 (24p) ISBN 978-0-02-749391-7
Not only dinosaur aficionados will appreciate this comic counting book chronicling numbers one through 10 with a variety of prehistoric animals. The names of these creatures would be difficult to pronounce without Blumenthal's phonetic guides, conveniently located under each piece of text. Facts (``Two Composognathus always on the run'') blend with whimsy (``Six Ceratopsians wearing frills and purple socks''), and ample additional information is provided in the clever Append-a-saurus. Kaufman's humorous pictures give readers a light-hearted perspective on these prehistoric beasts, which are too often depicted as cumbersome and dull-witted. Ages 4-8. (Mar.)
