Reviews

"The expressions on Watts' characters are especially well done. Readers can immediately see when Emily is angry, impatient, scared and contented. The pictures are over-sized and brimming with primary colours."
Highly Recommended.
-- "CM Magazine"

"The visual elements of the book suit this defiant humour. . . Leslie Watts's illustrations are pleasing in the way they flesh out the text's sketchier details."
-- "Quill & Quire"

"(Readers) will have been nicely caught up in this well told and convincingly illustrated drama."
-- "Toronto Globe & Mail"

"The critter's increasing size (and the increasing size of the text each time it roars "More!") has a delicious sense of menace. What audiences will most relate to are Emily's angry disappointment in her too-busy parent and the resulting personification of that anger, which is effective, funny, and just a little scary."
-- "Booklist"

"Written with humor and creativity, Gilmore's story dramatizes the tenderness of a parent/child relationship. . . Watts's artwork illuminates an already luminous story. Each spread is painted in bright, gleaming colors, featuring rosy-cheeked Emily and her fantastical dinosaurs with a backdrop of glistening white snow. Moving with the ebb and flow of her anger, Emily's imagination soars, revealing the vulnerability of love and offering a make-believe depiction of the real emotional life of children."
