Summary- (Taken from the inside jacket) “Watch the unstoppable destructive force of a raging temper tantrum! Tremble at the enormous mess and disrespectful roaring! Despair as no amount of scolding can stem the heedless fury! Someone is heading for a time-out, Mister! “
A little monster takes his terrible temper-tantrum out on the city. No amount of scolding will get him to stop. He is throwing a gigantic fit until he gets what he wants!
What I thought– I thought this was a hilarious book. The story is very cute, and the narrator’s voice (an adult trying to get Destructosaurus to stop) is terrific. Mr. Tankard’s illustrations are awesome! They are digitally made and I think they really give a lot to the story. I personally am a huge Godzilla fan and really appreciated Destructosaurus’ rampage. 🙂
At first, my little sister wasn’t sure who was talking to Destructosaurus when she was reading the book herself. But when my mom read it out loud to her, she really cracked up laughing. I love how the book shows the ultimate temper tantrum. It is cool how Mr Reynolds can write a story about a monster destroying a city and make the monster cute and cuddly. 🙂 I bet all kids have a Destructosaurus tantrum at one point. I think parents will really like this book too. The ending of the book is great!
