How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Cats?

Jane Yolen, Author, Mark Teague, Illustrator , illus. by Mark Teague Scholastic/Blue Sky $6.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-545-15354-6

In this board book spinoff of their long-running series, Yolen and Teague’s lovable dinosaurs bully and ignore their pets: “How does a dinosaur play with her cat?/ Does she throw pillows at it and act like a brat?” After other instances of bad behavior are pictured in humorous detail, the latter half of the book is dedicated to proper pet care. Kids who need a reminder about being gentle should get the message without feeling called out. Also available: How Do Dinosaurs Love Their Dogs? Ages 3–5. (Jan.)
