Title: Candy and the Cankersaur
Author: Jason Sandberg
Rating: 4.5/5
Recommended Age: 3-9

Summary: This is the sweet and funny tale of a young girl named Candy and her Cankersaurus Rex! Candy receives a dinosaur as a gift and is determined to train him to be a good pet. This playful homage to Syd Hoff will make all dinosaur-crazy boys and girls happy! Enjoy!

My 2 Cents: Personally, I think the book is awesome. However, I actually asked one of my little cousin to read and give his opinion. He said, even though Candy has a cool Dinosour, he thought it would be great if a boy has it instead of a girl. He claimed he would be a better friend to his Dinosour. LOL. I really thought that was funny for him to actually be jealous of Candy! That being said, have to agree that having a dinosour as a pet is like every little kid's wish, me no excluded. The book is fun, fresh, creative and very easily feel connected to the story. I would be delighted to recommend to my friends and mommy friends to read to their loved ones as a nice bedtime story.
