Reviews

Publishers Weekly

“Gott’s high-energy cartoons place readers right in the football action, with dinosaur tackles, touchdowns, and a rousing halftime show.” —Publishers Weekly

School Library Journal

“Gott’s illustrations of the tackles are more humorous than brutal, and he draws examples of good sportsmanship on and off the field. A detailed scoreboard and color-coded naming system in the text (the dinos’ names are in green or red depending on their team) make this game easy to follow.” —School Library Journal
