Hamilton Troll Meets Dinosaurs is a children's story written by Kathleen J Shields. The story starts with Hamilton asking a question of Beaver and being told about the past days when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Hamilton was so excited to be learning new things that he dreamed about living among the dinosaurs when he fell asleep. Hamilton was pleased to find out that they were pleasant and he was able to play with them and see the differences between all the different types of dinosaurs. The story gave a lot of detail about dinosaurs and how some ate meat and others ate plants.

Kathleen Shields did a good job in providing details about dinosaurs and how they existed so many millions of years ago. Hamilton Troll's curiosity was a great way to draw in children because of their natural need for answers about things they have never experienced. Although it was a short children's story, it gave a lot of valuable information about dinosaurs and the prehistoric era. It is easy to understand and read to small children. It is a good story that encourages children to learn about new things and ask questions about things they may not understand. The illustrations, which were done by Leigh Klug and Carol Bryant, helped make the story interesting because the pictures did a good job at reinforcing the plot. Overall, this is a very good story!
