Diane Adams

Anticipation and anxiety lead to gleeful exhilaration in this story of a father-son roller-coaster ride.

A timid young boy is just barely tall enough to ride the DinoCoaster, so he joins his father for a fast-paced journey that takes them climbing, zooming, sailing, and lurching upside down, round and round, past a colorful cast of amusement park creations. When the roller coaster finally comes to a stop, the boy is ready for another ride...but his queasy father isn't quite as enthusiastic.

Diane Adams' action-packed propulsive rhyme carries the reader along on a journey from fear to delight, accompanied by Kevin Luthardt's appealing, friendly amusement park dinosaurs.

Praise for this book

"The text, which consists of brief rhyming couplets, successfully carries the action. Luthardt's quirky acrylic cartoons make effective use of bright colors and crisp lines and should have substantial child appeal. . . .the story could be an effective discussion starter for overcoming fears."--School Library Journal

"[Luthardt's] amusement-park palette and boldly geometric acrylics pop with energy. . . it's a triumph that youngsters won't mind reliving several times over."--Publishers Weekly
