Praise For Dinos Are Forever

"Lighter-than-air superhero fun."--Kirkus

"Trine’s offbeat brand of humor and Dormer’s angular, childlike illustrations . . . hit the mark."—Publishers Weekly "There’s plenty of goofy middle-grade appeal here for both boys and girls; hand this to kids suffering from Phineas and Ferb withdrawal now that school is back in session."—Bulletin
