Double Dino Trouble by Diana Aleksandrova is a children’s fantasy story about Mr. Smith, someone with sharp eyes and a quick wit, and a dinosaur named Timo. Mr. Smith is fairly oblivious to everything around him, including a dinosaur, even though he claims to love paleontology. An echinodon hatches almost under his very nose and begins life with a fresh and unbiased perspective. After snacking at a worksite, he imprints on Mr. Smith and starts following him, not knowing how rude that can be in modern society. And when he starts meeting the common household pets of the day? Well, either the fur will fly or he will make new friends. Meanwhile, eagle-eyed Johnny tries to convince Smith about a dinosaur tailing him, but that man will of course have none of that. How ridiculous to imagine a dinosaur (extinct of course for millions of years) actually following him around! But when Smith and Timo finally meet, let’s just say it becomes a melodrama in seconds.
I liked this story. It’s cute, fun, and filled with all kinds of dinosaur-talking imagination. Besides the humor, it allows kids to learn a little about the creatures who roamed our planet so many eons ago (thank goodness). It also makes light fun of us humans who seem to know everything there is to know about…well, just about everything. Double Dino Trouble by Diana Aleksandrova is a quick and engaging book for young readers who will certainly enjoy the imagination and thought put into this hilarious story. Highly recommended.
