Horn Book Review

Written by Bruce Hale. This new story features illustrations done "in the style of Syd Hoff." The dinosaur joins Danny and family for a beach day. They play in the water and sand and enter a sand-castle contest. The dinosaur accidentally wrecks Danny's castle but saves the day when high tide threatens the other entries. While tepid, this is better than previous follow-ups to Hoff's original stories. (c) Copyright 2019. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
