Blurb from goodreads:

Chipper and Squizzo are a precocious puppy and squirrel who love to explore new and exciting environments, flying their cardboard box airplane to wondrous worlds full of fascinating animals and creatures. In each volume of this fun, educational series, they tour a different location, encountering the real-world animals found there in beautiful illustration and fun cartoon strip antics.

This exciting volume sees our adorable nature guides traveling back in time (in their cardboard time machine) to view the dinosaurs up close!

My Thoughts:

I've enjoyed this series so far and was happy to see another issue released.

The design of the book is the same as the previous ones. Each page, at the top, has black and white panels with Squizzo and Chipper with the animals in glorious color on the rest of the page. The pictures of the dinosaurs and their world are in full color and drawn in a realistic and detailed, yet still cartoonish, fashion. There's a minimal story but it's the journey and the dinosaurs encountered along the way that will engage children, as well as the bright, eye-catching artwork. At the back of the book the author provides more detailed information about the animals they encountered during their trip.  It can be used to introduce the topic of pre-historic life, evolution, archeology and more. A great book for school and class libraries.
