Book Summary: 

This is the sweet and funny tale of a young girl named Candy and her Cankersaurus Rex! Candy receives a dinosaur as a gift and is determined
to train him to be a good pet. This playful homage to Syd Hoff will make all dinosaur-crazy boys and girls happy! Enjoy!

As a bedtime story Picture Book it’s aimed for children ages 3-6.
As a read-alone Picture Book it’s appropriate for children ages 6-9.




The summary of this book says it is a homage to Syd Hoff…  It most definitely has a Danny and the Dinosaur feel to it.  The illustrations were delightful and would be well received by preschool age children.  The story focuses on jealousy and could be used to have a discussion with little kids about how we can appropriately respond when someone has something we want.

Overall a cute story worth reading especially if illustrations make or break a picture book for you.  They definitely “made” this book one I enjoyed.
