PreSchool-Grade 3-- Comically detailed watercolor cartoons show a peaceful contemporary landscape invaded by hordes of marauding dinosaurs. Unlike Bernard Most's helpful reptiles ( If the Dinosaurs Came Back HBJ, 1978), Mansell's are true to their saurian natures: Diplodocus plucks houseplants from sixth-story windows; hungry Tyrannosaurus terrorizes a suburban neighborhood; Triceratops and Styracosaurus charge an armored truck. Innocent bystanders betray a mixture of emotions, from curiosity to alarm, while a wide-eyed boy looks on with wonder and delight. The front endpapers of this oversized volume introduce the 20 dinosaurs mentioned in the text (complete with phonetic spellings); the closing endpapers present 17 additional prehistoric reptiles ("can you imagine what it would be like if they came to town?"). Like his illustrations, Mansell's text is refreshingly earnest and jovial, its comical mix of fantasy and fact striking just the right note for the youngest of dinosaur fanciers.

Mansell imagines dinosaurs in various contemporary environments: Diplodocus causing an urban traffic jam; Deinonychus in competition with the rats at a dump; Stegosaurus browsing in a pasture; Elasmosaurus menacing a rowboat; Bagceratops nesting on a child's bed. A wealth of intriguing details in the cartoon-style illustrations dramatize size and behavior while making delightfully logical extensions from the premise. Not a new idea, but carried out with unusual verve, humor, and respect for the substantial amount of information conveyed. (Picture book. 4-10) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP.
