I love that this picture book uses dinosaurs that aren't well known. There are so many dinosaur books out there and the uncommon ones make this one especially stand out. I love the illustration style. It's both an engaging adventure and informative!

Thanks to netgalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest review!

Follow Deinonychus as he goes through his day, including breakfast, exploration, a misadventure, and a nap. The illustrations were beautiful and colorful, but a few things missed the mark for me with this book. It was.overall less informative than I am used to with DK Books, and while the pronunciations of the dinosaurs' names are identified at the back, I think it would be much more helpful to have them at the beginning or incorporated within the text. Overall, this wouldn't be my first choice for a dinosaur book, but it will be a fun read for a dinosaur lover.

Thank you to DK Children and NetGalley for providing an advance reader copy for me to review!

A cute story about a deinonychus who goes hunting! It introduces children to this lesser known dinosaur with a story that incorporate facts about its life and adorable illustrations. I had never heard of this dinosaur before, so I learned a lot myself! A great book for kids, especially those who love dinosaurs.

This was a beautifully illustrated and very informative little book about one of the less famous dinosaurs, the deinonychus! We follow deinonychus on her adventure filled day and learn things along the way. I love that the last pages are full of facts - and a pronunciation guide, those names were definitely just a jumble in my head hahaha.

I think this would be perfect for any little dinosaur lover! Thanks so much NetGalley and DK for this arc!

Thanks to Netgalley and DK for the ARC of this!

My dinosaur lover really enjoyed this! The art and story were cute. My tiny complaint was the pronunciation guide was at the end - I would’ve loved it to be next to the names of the dinosaurs within the story.
