I'm a Dirty Dinosaur delivers 'extreme joyousness' in the Kirkus Review

September 05, 2014

Who has a starred Kirkus Reviews? The Dirty Dino that’s who! Congratulations to Janeen Brian, Ann James, Penguin Books Australia and Kane Miller for publishing ‘I’m a Dirty Dinosaur’ into the US.

Here’s a snippet of the review:


“This Australian import cries out for toddler participation, with parts for everyone.

The little dinosaur—an outline sketch of a creature drawn with multicolored pencil—rejoices in total mudlusciousness with a vigorous chant…

It is nearly impossible to look at without reading aloud, chanting aloud, and even tapping and stamping and sliding: extreme joyousness. (Picture book. 4-7)”

Authors: Janeen Brian
