The Land Sharks take on the Algae Eaters in a dino-swimming showdown!

Raptor and Stegosaurus start it off in the individual medley, while the Ptero twins battle it out in the butterfly race. Then Galli and Diplo wow the crowd with their flips and tricks off the diving board! But which team will win the swim meet? It comes down to the last event: the backstroke. Both Stego and Galli think they’ll take the prize. Let’s hope these dinos remembered their goggles―this swim meet is bound to make a splash!

Dinosaurs face off in prehistoric sports competitions—from baseball to wrestling and every sport in between! Will the plant-eaters become the champions? Or will the meat-eaters be victorious? Fast-paced, rhyming commentary and exuberant illustrations put readers right in the action. Sure to thrill dinosaur lovers and sports fans alike!
