School Library Journal - 10/01/2017 PreS-Gr 1— This prehistoric romp opens with Tyrannosaurus Rex throwing his weight around as usual, terrifying other dinosaurs as he searches of a suitable breakfast. As the other dinos flee in terror, Edna, the very first chicken, stands her ground, and when the "lord of the forest" tries to eat her, he gets a nasty surprise. This title is a delight. Edna adds a quirky element to the usual dinosaur book fare, and the voices of the various characters here—especially the T. rex after Edna sinks her pointy claws into his tongue—will make for a hilarious choice for bedtime read-alouds and library storytimes. The audience will also appreciate the colorful visual gags such as Edna's feathered behind disappearing off the page as she torpedoes from the T. rex's mouth. VERDICT Funny, colorful, and different. Try this with Rachael Mortimer's The Three Billy Goats Fluff for a pairing featuring wily animals that save the day.— Henrietta Verma, National Information Standards Organization, Baltimore - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
