Meet the Critters

It’s feeding time at Pete’s shop, and you’re just in time to meet all the critters! πŸ™‚

All the critters are here, and now it’s time to work on their pages!Β  Once done, you’ll get to click on a character’s picture to find out more cool facts like size, diet, and how to pronounce those super long names!

In the meantime, I hope you don’t mind a game of finding clickable pictures.Β  Pardon the construction! πŸ™‚

  2. These are very cute and I love that they’re accurate as well. What a wonderful idea for a children’s book!

    Might I also suggest a Torvosaurus tanneri? If you’re going to expand into Aptian- Albian (early Cretaceous) fauna as well, I definitely want to suggest Acrocanthosaurus…

    1. Hi Leandra, thank you for stopping by, it’s great to have you here! πŸ™‚

      I’m glad you like my little critters. I really enjoy drawing them, and it’s an extra bonus that all the kids I’ve shown them to so far have really liked them too. πŸ™‚

      At the moment I’m concentrating on Jurassic animals. It may take a couple of years, but I’ll certainly keep Torvosaurus in mind when we dip into the Cretaceous.

      I’m more than happy to listen to any suggestions, so if you know of any obscure Jurassic fauna (not just dinosaurs) then I’d to hear from you. πŸ™‚

      P.S. – I love your reconstructions, especially the plateosaurus. There’s not enough love for early sauropodomorphs out there. πŸ™‚

    2. As well as that, how about giving the name Tanner to the Torvosaurus.

      Leah, the Torvosaurus will be male and will have that name, unless Patricia changes her mind, which shouldn’t happen.
      As well as that, she should create a book called Jurassic Overview, which reviews over 225 prehistoric animals from the Jurassic.

        1. Hi Angel, thank you so much for stopping by! I have thought about the idea of a dinosaur/prehistoric critter alphabet book. Perhaps someday! At the moment, I’m focusing on a series that will feature various critters, including dinosaurs of course. Each book will focus on a different time period. I just chose the Jurassic first because dinosaurs are so popular, and a lot of our classic favorites happen to be Jurassic critters. πŸ™‚

          It’ll take two more books after this one to get the “age of dinosaurs covered”, but after that there will be all sorts of critters from other time periods. πŸ™‚

          1. Also, this took me a while, but I thought of an alphabet of prehistoric animals from the Triassic.
            I will give you their names:

            A: Asilisaurus
            B: Blikanasaurus
            C: Coelophysis
            D: Desmatosuchus
            E: Eudimorphodon
            F: Fasolasuchus
            G: Guaibasaurus
            H: Herrerasaurus
            I: Isanosaurus
            J: Jaklapallisaurus
            K: Keichousaurus
            L: Lilliensternus
            M: Melanorosaurus
            N: Nothosaurus
            O: Odontochelys
            P: Plateosaurus
            Q: Qianosuchus
            R: Riojasaurus
            S: Shringasaurus
            T: Typothorax
            U: Utatsusaurus
            V: Vancleavea
            W: Wangosaurus
            X: Xilousuchus
            Y: Youngosuchus
            Z: Zupaysaurus

            Can you try to use all of these?

            1. Thank you for the suggestion. Many of these critters and other critters will be featured once I get to the Triassic. There are lots of interesting animals to include in a picture book, but I’m afraid the alphabet will have to wait. ☺️ I have a lot of ideas planned already, but not enough time to get them done fast enough!

    1. Hi Daniel, thank you so much for dropping by! πŸ™‚

      I’m glad you like my little menagerie of critters. A few people have suggested I take this to schools and libraries, and the wheels have been turning ever since. There are all kinds of directions we can go with this, even language skills (if you can pronounce a dino’s name, you can read anything) whatever my dear readers want. πŸ™‚

      On a more focused point, I’m planning on expanding upon these profiles, and putting them to good use. πŸ™‚

  3. I’m having trouble deciding between Maya and Skittles, both are adorable! Hah, all of them are actually. Can’t wait to meet the other critters! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Misty! Thank you for stopping by πŸ™‚

      I’m glad you like the critters. Skittles is one of my favorites so far 😊 I imagine her being rather like a cat. The kind that’s super sweet, and likes to snuggle close to get stroked between the ears. πŸ™‚

  4. I like the format! Very simple and easy to navigate through. πŸ™‚ Also, I think dilophosaurus is starting to grow on me. It just might become a new favorite of mine!

    1. Hmm, I may do a blog post on this someday. But short answer is…it depends on the critter. Some are very quick and simple, and others would take a day or so even without life getting in the way πŸ™‚
