    • Jos kirjan sisällöksi riittää, että Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus ja Megalosaurus matkustavat (viuh vauh) Kuuhun ja pitävät siellä (hui hai) hauskaa ja palaavat (vips hips) kotiin, niin tämä kirja on sinulle. Muut voivat jatkaa matkaa sillä mitään muuta nähtävää täällä ei ole.


    • Love all these books. Although it doesn't rhyme it's about making noise and just enjoying what these beasts get up too. Also it's about learning dinosaur names and the different vehicles that are used in each book.


    • Realistic space vehicle and illustrations; various space elements: launch pad, moon vehicles, space suits, splash down; inside front and back covers feature both dinosaurs and space - two major loves of young elementary students


    • Dinosaurs and outer space - what's not to love? Colorful, interesting illustrations. This would be great for outer space, rocket ships, or space travel storytime. I could stop and do the song "Zoom Zoom Zoom - We're Going to the Moon" in the middle (there's a perfect place for it).


    • Just bizarre. This book irritated me so much. If it had been about astronauts, it would have been really good, but why switch astronauts for dinosaurs? Makes no sense at all!



    • Fun concept and nice illustrations, but the rhythm, meter, and onomatopoeia are so off it distracts and detracts from the story.



    • Although the absurdity of dinosaurs being launched into space and exploring the moon strikes me as bizarrely humorous and implausible, this one is sure to be a hit. Young readers and dinosaur fans will love seeing the prehistoric creatures in their spacecraft and zooming across the face of the moon in their spacesuits. And when they spot their home planet and feel a tug toward home, a few readers' heart strings may be stirred as well. The watercolor and pencil illustrations are color-drenched an [...]


    • Dinosaurs. Rockets. Rhythm. An easy sell for the dino and/or space enthusiasts. The narrative itself is straight-forward: arrive at rocket, board rocket, count down, land, return. There are not any twists, surprises or great narrative leaps. However, it is solid in its soothing rhythms and the double-page spread depicting "lift-off" really showcases the illustrator's talent using pencil and watercolor. Whereas the dinosaur illustrations can be a bit garish in color in style, this spread is beaut [...]


    • Dinosaurs are preparing for and then heading into space. The text is very simpler and repetitive and the illustrations are great fund most contain some realistic elements (the moon, rockets, Earth, etc. look realistic) while mixed with fantastical elements (dinosaurs in space suits, dinosaurs whizzing around the moon.). Definitely not scientific but great fun for those who love space or love dinosaurs or both.


    • I admit it, I laughed outright throughout this nonsensical book about dinosaurs taking a rocket to the moon. The text isn't necessarily scintillating, but who cares. They're dinosaurs! They're wearing space suits! Their little dinosaur hands are attempting to drive moon buggies! Come on! This is for every dino-loving kid out there. Recommended.


    • Loved, loved, LOVED the illustrations. They were wonderfully drawn, engaging, and informative - I'm a sucker for space exploration, so the whole plot was fun for me.But I hated the text. HATED the text. Text hating. Hating everything about the repetition. Repetition that makes me scream. Screaming away from the words. Words that won't stop.


    • As crazy as it seems, dinosaurs are off to the moon. The four-year-old loved this: dinosaurs, vehicles, rockets, space and moon landings. With rhyming text and detailed, panoramic illustrations, what's not to love?


    • Actually quite good - didn't like the repetition myself, but read ok at storytimes!Good for a science or rocket themed session.Also the QR turning it into an audio book was really easy and worked well, but would require parental supervision.


    • This would be a story that could keep the interest of children who like dinosaurs and/or space. There is no real plot, just dinosaurs doing the tasks that people do.


    • Not really my cup of tea, but the illustrations are fun, there's sound effects to read aloud, and kids will love the silliness.






    • It's hard to go wrong with a book that combines two of our house's favorite things, dinosaurs and space. We love the pictures but I gave it one star led because I'm not a huge fan of the story flows.


    • Dinosaurukset lentävät kuuhun, pomppivat siellä ja lentävät takaisin. Ja kaikki nämä ihan aidoilla raketeilla ja systeemeillä.


    • Great pairingdinosaurs in space, yes please!The wording and repetition never really get into a steady groove though


    • Kids love dinosaurs and anything to do with space. This author combined the two. Colorful, energetic, illustrations accompany the simple, repetitive text. An entertaining read.



    • When I first saw this I thought *meh*, but AFTER flipping through it I found it to be very charming and fun. Dinosaurs and rockets? But of course!


    • Dinosaurs and Space? Dinosaurs going to space and back? A sure hit with preschool children obsessed with one or both subjects. Because dinosaurs and space! :)


    • Dinosaurs, rockets, outer space, bold, bright illustrations, and the repetition of words on each page make this a great pick for toddlers!
