Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: My kids thought it was entertaining, but I didn’t really enjoy it. The rhythm and rhyme weren’t quite right, and I found myself stumbling to read it aloud. It could have just been the after-dinner-ZOMG-is-it-bedtime-yet mood I was in, but I barely made it through the whole story. I’d like to tell you I’ll give it another go sometime when I’m not as cranky, but, well, I won’t.
I like that readers can vote on Alfred’s next adventure, but I’d recommend Mr. Cullum spend a bit more time polishing his text.
Would I recommend it: Nope. The rhymes and rhythms don’t flow and there’s lots of superfluous text. Try THIS BOOK instead.
About the book – from Goodreads: Alfred is a dinosaur. He is big and blue and and a little mean as he rules the Jurassic. But he finds himself alone, not getting to play with the other dinosaurs. It might take a little time travel, but Alfred is on a journey to be a good friend.
