With the promise of a stop at "The Swamp" (playground) on the way home, suburban dinosaur Doris takes little brother Dilly to "The Shopping Cavern" (mall), where signs ("Marks & Stegosaurus"; "MACDINO") play on dinosaur names and where escalator riders are warned to carry their tails. The interaction is even more contemporary: every time someone speaks to Dilly, Doris butts in to answer for him - until they get home and Dilly gets even by answering Mother's question to her: of course, she'd like to take him out again! Hellard's broad, uninhibited line is just right for turning these unwieldy creatures into comical caricatures - a pink-haired punk, a grouchy old lady, or the talkative schoolgirl and her eager little brother. Predictable, but fun and sure to please. (Kirkus Reviews)
