        Carol Diggory Shields was inspired to write SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DINOSAUR STOMP after being called a Nagosaurus by my five year old, she admits I started playing with the idea of partying dinosaurs who were scientifically accurate or less , and somehow in the prehistoric ooze of my brain, SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DINOSAUR STOMP took shape Her rocking prehistoric party proved a hit with both young readers and critics Witty and imaginative, the poem has a rhythm that makes cumbersome multisyllable dinosaur names roll off the tongue, said KIRKUS REVIEWS.Currently a children s librarian, Carol Diggory Shields has also worked with children as a recreational therapist and at one time was a designer of stuffed toys Her years of being around children have no doubt helped her get a feel for the fun but factual stories that kids love, told in animated verse with an infectious beat After successfully collaborating with illustrator Scott Nash on SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DINOSAUR STOMP, she teamed up with him for MARTIAN ROCK, the true story of how a meteorite from Mars arrived on Earth, she quips More recently, the pair worked together again on THE BUGLIEST BUG, a wacky tale of an insect talent contest threatened by hungry spiders disguised as judges and a brave little Damselfy who saves the day Insects are awesome , the author enthuses Every human invention, from catapults to jet propulsion, had already been invented and used by bugs for millions of years And that s why to be bugly is the ultimate compliment The author of several books for children, Carol Diggory Shields lives in northern California.

    1. Food Fight was an awesome book! The humor and puns were really funny and the illustrations go right along with the humor. I really can't come up with a message or lesson that is supposed to be taken from this book. The main action is how the food wakes up at night when everyone is sleeping and comes alive and has a "food" fight. But in the end the potatoes make everyone clean up the mess and that is how it ends. Great Book!


    2. Personal Reaction: The puns in the book are great and it made me want to reread it a few times to see if there were any I missed.Children will love being read this silly book. Older readers will love finding the puns and word play. It's a goofy book with funny illustrations. It would be best read for fun or during free time. The pictures were unique and seemed to be similar to claymation.


    3. This book was thrust in my hands by my 8-year-old, who insisted that I read it right then and there. My 10-year-old just chimed in about how much she liked it, too. I love alphabet books that have a story that flows well--so well you almost forget it was meant to be an alphabet book. The puns were entertaining as well!




    4. The entire family loved this book. The puns are hilarious and the pictures are fun. It's easy to read aloud with the rhyming lines.




    5. Oh my goodness, this one is a RIOT. Totally hilarious. "close the door, I'm dressing in here" said the Ranch. And it just got better from there. Totally my type of humor. Love it.


    6. Very punny, clever with some fun illustrations. I usually don't laugh at puns (unless they're my own, of course), but several of these made me laugh.
