The little boy in this picture book is sweet and engaging. The simple cartoon like illustrations convey his emotions perfectly. Most illustrations are full-color two-page spreads.

The little boy wants to do everything with his Triceratops that other children can do with their dog. The results are hilarious.

Part way through the book it would be a good idea to stop and discuss with your child what kind of problems the little boy might have with a Triceratops especially if he continues to try to make it do dog tricks. Any child with the dog will find this funny. Any child who’s wanted an exotic pet will find it even funnier. After you are finished the book, be sure to discuss how their choice of pet would manage the tricks.

A fun, positive book that is sure to be enjoyed by boys and girls alike.
