A young boy playfully imagines the “dinosaur who hatched in the backyard and grew to be the size of the family car”.à About midway into this story, what has appeared to be a young boy’s wishful thinking becomes a smooth piece of nonfiction, charmingly packed with facts by Hennessy.à The narrator tells how the dinosaur hatched, how large it grew and how much it weighed, in scenes that are part of his backyard.à But soon the backgrounds change, and the dinosaur becomes part of the past, playing with the other species now extinct, on land that only millions of years later would become this child’s neighborhood.à
