School Library Journal - 10/01/2012 PreS-Gr 2—Yolen and Teague add to their delightful dinosaur canon with this funny, gentle reminder of proper behavior for the most eagerly anticipated of holidays. As in previous titles, the dinosaurs have human parents and each one can be identified by the inclusion of its name in the illustrations. The 10 featured behemoths also adorn the endpapers. Enhancing the hilarity are the cats and dogs in the role of family pets bearing witness to the dinosaurs' antics-such as sneaking out of bed to peek, ripping open presents, deconstructing the tree, pre-licking candy canes, dumping out stockings, and eating Santa's cookies. Don't pass up this exuberant guide to achieving yuletide harmony.—Linda Israelson, Los Angeles Public Library - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
