WHADDAYA THINK OF THAT?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The lyrics to Berkner's 1997 dinosaur marching song are kitted out with a plotline, dialogue, additional sound effects, and big, very simply drawn prehistoric scenes. Bidding their parents goodbye, diminutive dinos Ernesto and Dax gather a multispecies gang of fellow hatchlings and go marching, marching to make the earth flat. Following lunch and a climb, all settle down in a cave for a nap until a rumbling quake sends them scooting back down the mountain to their parents (It was rad, Dad! You should have been there, Mom!) for a final rousing ROOAARRR! The main lyrics of the songs are offset by occasional cartoon-style lines of dialogue from the dino crew. As is typical of songs converted to this format, there is no strong rhythm or cadence to the lines, but the original is likely to be familiar enough (and is widely available on recordings and online) that young audiences will have no trouble chiming in as they march about and roar in chorus.--Peters, John Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Popular children's musician Berkner (The Story of My Feelings) brings another of her songs to the picture book crowd with this vibrant adaptation. Berkner's lyrics provide a rowdy framework for the story-"We are the dinosaurs,/ marching, marching./ We are the dinosaurs-/ whaddaya think of that?"-and Clanton's (Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea) zippy cartoons create a parallel visual adventure that brings Berkner's 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 they've been resting in starts to rumble, sending the dinos on a quick march home. Berkner's fans and newcomers alike should find much to enjoy about in these boisterous, independent-minded dinosaurs' adventure. Ages 4-8.
