From the Series Dino-Sports
In this installment of dino competition, meat eaters face off against plant eaters in three high-speed auto events: drag racing, off-road racing, and stock-car racing. Lisa Wheeler’s rhymes explore thoughtful questions such as: Which dinosaurs would make the best chasers for support in a desert off-road race? Does T-Rex’s king status transfer to the track? And can Diplodocus actually fit inside a stock car? Barry Gott’s illustrations bring all the hilarious action to life.
