Kids will enjoy the relationship of the two friends, the humor of Tank misunderstanding what Haggis says (reminiscent of Amelia Bedlia), and the delightful scenes of the pals having fun with their new acquaintance - the triceratops. Adults will be able to laugh along with young readers as they sympathize with the frustration Haggis feels about Tank's confusion over where the dinosaurs are. "There aren't any left?" "There aren't any right?" "So where are they - left or right?" James Burks does a wonderful job illustrating the story, capturing Tank's wide-eyed wonder at everything around and the long-suffering patience of Haggis as he indulges his friend's desire for adventure.
Great for readers just beginning the transition from picture books to chapter books.
