My thoughts about Candy and the Cankersaur ~~

I loved reading Syd Hoff's book Danny and the Dinosaur to my kids when they were little. Jason Sandberg's book is a nice tribute to that book and that author. The story is about a little girl who get a cankersaur from her father, who wants her to have the best toys, while he keeps himself busy with work. The neighbor boy gets jealous of her new dinosaur and tries to take it away from her.

Candy and the Cankersaur kept the interest of my grandchildren, as I read it to them. What kid doesn't just love dinosaurs? And we all enjoyed the illustrations; the drawings and colors are very eye-catching.

I look forward to seeing more of Jason's work.

Candy and the Cankersaur is a picture book about a girl who receives a dinosaur as a gift and her determination to train him to be a good pet. It's a fun homage to Syd Hoff and will make all dinosaur-crazy boys and girls happy.
