Fabulous--Absolutely Beloved By Our 4 Year Old 29 Nov. 2003
By "njmom-of-2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I came upon this book when my daughter became interested in dinosaurs. I had been searching for books that use dinosaurs as interesting characters and with storylines, and this certainly fit the bill. But we found it had an even greater appeal--it very amusingly rewrites the classic Cinderella tale! Instead of the usual passive victim, Dinorella is the true heroine of the story and saves the male character, the Duke! Our kids all get enough of the Disney versions of fairy tales these days--I think this is a terrific way to demonstrate that a girl can be strong (and wear a pretty dress and jewels, too!). After a year of heavy use, and nearly daily requests for this to be read aloud, I had to order another copy because our beloved Dinorella book was practically in shreds. Trust me, girls ages 4-6 will LOVE this book! And boys seem to like it, too (plenty of action, and of couse, the dinosaurs)--I read this book aloud to my daughter's pre-kindergarten class a few weeks ago, and the boys were just as enthralled as the girls. I think it is nice to read boys books with strong female characters, so I will read our copy to my baby son when he is older. There is an extremely negative review of this book posted, which I find unbelievable . . . give this book a chance, especially if you and your kids have enjoyed any of the author's other books. It's a rollicking good read, and the illustrations are lots of fun. You can't go wrong, especially for the price of the paperback!

Dinorella 6 Jun. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read the book Dinorealla by Pamela Duncan Edwards illustrated by Henry Cole. This book is about Daniela who has two evil stepsisters who got invited to Duke's party and they won't let her go to the party. Then her fairydactayle mother came and gave her a beautiful dress and jewelry so, when

She got there Duke was out side getting his tale bit by a different Dinosaur so she threw a diamond so then he ran and Duke found Dinorella so they lived happily ever after.

I like this book because it has good vocabulary and when it uses names.

The message is what goes around comes around because the sister's are mean and then she ends up with better life.

I think the vocabulary is good because it has good details and description.

In this book the conflict is person vs. because it's people.

The illustrations are good because it adds extra details not in the story.

The characters are Dora, Doris, Dinorella, and Duke

This is my favorite version of Cinderella because it has good details.

This book is good for all people because it has a strong lesson.

Read It!!! 11 Feb. 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Title-Dinorella *****

Author- Pamela Duncan Edwards

This story is about a Dinosaur called Dinorella who lives with her two-step sisters Doris, and Dora. This book is similar to `Cinderella.

I think this book is great because it has to do with bravery and children's romance.

This book should go to my pal, reading buddy and my seven-year-old cousin.

Dinorella 11 Feb. 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This story is about Cinderella, but with dinosaurs instead.
I like this book because It is very interesting and I like stuff with Cinderella in it.
This book is very good for my brothers and my sister because it is very understanding for kids 1-8 year olds.
The pictures are very beautiful and they are sometimes very funny.

Very entertaining!!! 29 Mar. 2010
By K. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My daughter loves this book. My 5 year old nephew brought it home from their school library and my sister-in-law read it to my daughter. She wanted to take it home with us. I had to promise her to find it for her. It is a tounge twister and is very entertaining. Also, the artwork is very well done.
