Energetic couplets and cartoon-style illustrations combine to depict a raucous Seder hosted by a family that happens to have a rambunctious dinosaur as its only guest. Plenty of information about the holiday is provided in the singsongy verse. An endnote offers additional facts. Copyright 2006 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PreS-K -The friendly, oversize creature from Dinosaur on Hanukkah (Lerner, 2005) returns to celebrate Passover with a boy and his family. In silly, rhyming text, the reptile tries to help perform the holiday rituals: removing the forbidden foods, preparing the horseradish, singing the four questions, drinking the wine, retelling the story of the Exodus, eating matzah, searching for the afikomen , and welcoming the prophet Elijah. While his size, enthusiasm, and clumsiness wreak havoc on the family Seder, by the end of the story he is "curled up in a heap" fast asleep. The illustrations are bright and sophisticated, complementing the cheery mood of the text. A brief endnote explains Passover, but the book will be best enjoyed by children already familiar with the holiday.-Rachel Kamin, Temple Israel Libraries & Media Center, West Bloomfield, MI
