School Library Journal ReviewPreS-Freedman and Cort offer another homage to underpants. Cartoons in bright colors and patterns pep up the rhymed tale that explains the demise of dinosaurs. According to Freedman, "When T. rex saw man's undies,/He roared with deafening rants./I don't want to eat you up./I want your underpants." All dinosaurs follow the obsessive fad, escalating to a manic dino tug-of-war that wipes out every order, saving mankind. Despite the skimpy plot, preschoolers will giggle as itchy or tight briefs annoy Stegosaurus or Diplodocus, while theft victim cavemen shyly cover up with huge leaves or the few remaining pairs of underwear.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
