Revenge of the Dinotrux

Chris Gall. Little, Brown, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-316-13288-6

The Dinotrux’s boisterous second adventure takes them from prehistory into the present day. Fed up with being stuck in a museum, they escape and unleash their vengeance: Dumplodocus carries off houses, Septisaurus drinks an entire swimming pool, and Cementosaurus dumps a gushing, gray “present” in the town square. After a reprimanding from the mayor, the Dinotrux are sent to school and learn how to put their energy to better use. Gall’s dinosaur/machine mash-ups are, once again, the star of the show, commanding attention (and generating laughs) in every action-filled, rust-toned scene. Ages 3–6. Agent: George Nicholson, Sterling Lord Literistic. (May)
