Popular childrens musician Berkner (The Story of My Feelings) brings another of her songs to the picture book crowd with this vibrant adaptation. Berkners lyrics provide a rowdy framework for the storyWe are the dinosaurs,/ marching, marching./ We are the dinosaurs/ whaddaya think of that?and Clantons (Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea) zippy cartoons create a parallel visual adventure that brings Berkners words to life. Rainbow-colored young dinosaurs, outlined with a chunky black line and wearing neckerchiefs like a kind of Mesozoic scouting troupe, bid farewell to their parents and march over a hill, through a river, and up a mountain. All along their trek, dialogue asides in the art keep readers in the action: Uh-oh! Time to go! says a yellow triceratops as the mountain theyve been resting in starts to rumble, sending the dinos on a quick march home. Berkners fans and newcomers alike should find much to enjoy about in these boisterous, independent-minded dinosaurs adventure. Ages 48.
