The authors rhyme about the earliest of mammal-like creatures, including the Equus lineage (horses).
Using rhyme ,After The Dinosaurs presents examples of the most primitive mammals, including the classic evolutionary development of the horse. The quatrains are easy to see, but the rhythm is inconsistent and can be hard to manage even for an adult. The illustrations are merely acceptable, being overly cartoonish. This good idea for a book is undone by poor execution.
This unusual presentation of the concept "one"—applied to groups (e.g. one dozen) —equivocates by concluding that "one" can actually be more than "one".
This unusual book demonstrates the abstract nature of the word "one". "One" can refer to one group composed of any number of objects, or even to a group with an unspecified number, such as a "family!" The illustrations properly progress from ONE "pair" of shoes to ONE beach of sand particles! Unfortunately, the book seriously fails, when it drops context to argue that "one" can also mean "five". Kids are left wondering if the quantity "one" can also mean the quantity "five."
Mog causes pointless chaos when visiting the vet, and both recover.
After an improper delay, Mog the cat is taken to the "Vee Ee Tee" for a sore paw. Twice the cat's behavior produces pet chaos at the vet clinic. No one seems able to control their animals. The pets appear to think conceptually, yet the events occur with no reason. The story blandly trails off as the Vet recovers the next day.
