The Ugly Dino Hatchling - OPTIONAL

Peters, Stephanie The Ugly Dino Hatchling, illustrated by Otis Frampton 36 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL Capstone, 2018 Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

When a Velociraptor steals an egg from the nest of a Mama Dino, one thing leads to another and the egg gets sucked through a swirling porthole and into the nest of a modern day duck. 

 This cute retelling of the Ugly Duckling in graphic novel format is a cute read. The story started out great, but the jokes were not very sophiticated , even for a child (naming your children 1,2,3,4?) and the resolution - really? All in all, a nice take on the story, but I think I'll pass on the purchase.
