Here Comes Destructo-saurus! by Aaron Reynolds, illustrated by Jeremy Tankard is like watching a toddler become a giant dinosaur and destroy a city. Oh, yeah, that's what it's all about. Hee Hee. I love Aaron Reynolds and Jeremy Tankard, what a great pairing. The narrator's voice is the parent and the illustrations are the rampaging toddler. The bold black outlines are also a perfect pairing with the animated electric colors. Those clamoring for dynamic digital art will love this title. I'll use it in my Storytime and recommend it to parents and caregivers. The writing will give welcome respite to parents that are all too familiar with tantrums and I doubt any toddler will have this kind of self-awareness, but they'll identify with Destructosaurus. Find out how Jeremy does his art, here.
