"Yee-haw! Saddle up for a rootin' tootin' introduction to denizens of the Mesozoic Ranch, courtesy of cowboy Buck Bronco. . . . The brightly colored critters (many identified by the genial narrator or labeled in the art) romp across the pages of McClements' cartoon-style illustrations before finding suitable spots to bed down for the night. Dinophiles and young horse lovers alike will want to book repeat rides."


— Booklist

"Bright, goofy mixed-media collage illustrations demonstrate the cowboy's instructions and will have dinosaur fans chuckling. Bits of information are scattered throughout, but the book is mainly a fun tall tale. The oversize pictures make it a good choice for storytimes; on the other hand, the details are best appreciated one-on-one."
— School Library Journal

"Saddle up, it’s Dino Rodeo time. . . . Mixed-media collage playfully pairs well with the inventive story line and reins in the humor. Buck himself looks like Woody from Toy Story, full of vim, vigor and enthusiastic advice. Dinos and rodeos saddle up perfectly and fans of both will kick back and grin."
