Ancient creatures use the declaration of the title to defiantly assert their non-dino status in a picture book distinguished by crisp, marble-textured graphics and lively rhymes, written in collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History. “My hunger for vegetables has no bounds./ I’m 10 feet long and 1,000 pounds!/ The Americas are where I explore.../ but—I am not a dinosaur,” reveals a glyptodont, a large relative of the armadillo seen huffily chewing on a plant. Other featured animals include a woolly mammoth, pterosaur, and Neanderthal child; a helpful closing page reveals what does constitute a dinosaur, including their connection to modern-day birds. Ages 4–7. (Apr.)
