In a hockey match unrivaled in prehistory, the Meat-Eaters take on the Veggiesaurs. Fans go wild in the stands as T. Rex and Triceratops face off, and the game is off to a rip-roaring start. An assist from Raptor gains the first goal for the Meat-Eaters—but the naughty Pterodactyl twins, playing wingers, earn their team a penalty. The Veggies are quick to take advantage and Diplo scores. A tie game! Join the fans and find out what happens. You’ll have a front row seat, so keep an eye on Raptor. Hockey gets him pretty riled up and that’s quite a set of teeth he’s baring . . .

Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

“It’s prehistoric pandemonium on ice as the toothy Meat-Eaters (in red jerseys) and the tough Veggiesaurs (in green) face off in a wild championship game. . . There’s many a tale featuring dinosaurs playing, being pets and even dancing, but here’s an activity far better suited to their red-in-tooth-and-claw natures.” —Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal

“In this fast-paced and wild hockey championship, the carnivores in red jerseys (Meat-Eaters) take on the herbivores in green (Veggiesaurs). Clever rhyming couplets keep the game lively and slip in facts about dinosaurs (‘Socks and jerseys keep them warm/cold-blooded beasts in uniform’) and the sport of hockey (‘Safety pads protect their bones./Some have helmets of their own’). . . An amusing pairing of a sporting event and prehistoric beasts.” —School Library Journal

Booklist

“Gott’s action-filled paintings amplify the sports moves and the players’ comically exaggerated expressions, from the scowling face off between T. Rex and Tricera to the jubilant postgame celebration, covered by eager dino newscasters.” —Booklist
