"Seek-and-find books don't get much more delightful than this English-language debut from French illustrator Gerrive, in which a blue sauropod locates missing people and animals in 11 scenes. "Dinosaur Detective! One of my students is hiding because he hasn't done his homework. Can you find him?" asks an irate teacher in a mountain scene featuring dozens of tiny skiers, sheep, shepherds-and giant monsters gnawing on snow-capped peaks. Gerrive channels Martin Handford in dense illustrations packed with surreal details (a planet made up of eyes, a museum crowded with humans, animals, ghosts, and aliens), and finding the missing creatures and objects is satisfyingly challenging." - Publishers Weekly Starred Review
"An interesting addition to the genre and to any collection. Get out your magnifying glasses and get searching." - Peter Blenski, Greenfield Public Library, WI, for School Library Journal
