Papasaurus

Stephan Lomp. Chronicle, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-4521-4425-2
Babysaurus, the orange star of 2016’s Mamasaurus, returns to play hide-and-seek with his blue-green brontosaurus father. While looking for his dad, Babysaurus runs into various young dinosaurs and asks each if they have seen him. “Does he have sharp claws to fight like my papa?” asks Velo, a velociraptor. “No, he never fights,” replies Babysaurus. Lomp colors the prehistoric landscape in inky black and olive green, as though hinting at the possibility of lurking danger, while the dinosaurs are rendered in vivid jewel tones. Lomp delicately explores the small steps children take toward independence, especially while a parent is comfortingly close at hand. Ages 3–5. Agent: Anne Moore Armstrong, Bright Agency. (May)
