Dinosaur Dream

Robin Michal Koontz, Author Putnam Publishing Group $13.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-399-21669-5
Wordlessly, Koontz shows how playtime extends into dreamtime when a boy goes to bed. Ensconced in a bed full of stuffed toy dinosaurs, a boy awakens and finds himself carried away by an apatosaurus to a prehistoric land where real beasts roam. He encounters friendly dinosaurs and some fearful moments, but a triceratops soon drops the boy off on his very own windowsill. The action is fluidly developed, giving this work a dimension that will appeal to readers and pre-readers alike. An index at the back identifies the 31 dinosaurs pictured in the book, demonstrating that the artist's buoyant watercolors are informative as well as fun. Ages 2-7. (Nov.)
