Tyrone, the Double Dirty Rotten Cheater

Hans Wilhelm, Author Scholastic $12.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-590-44079-0
The prolific Wilhelm introduced his benignly naughty dinosaur in Tyrone the Horrible , and kids who loved to hate him in that lively tale will do the same here. Boland and his dinosaur pals are not overjoyed when Tyrone tags along on a week-long camping trip to Swamp Island. Living up to his reputation as a troublemaker, the unscrupulous Tyrone cheats at every game and ends up winning all the prizes. Children will cheer when the sneaky dinosaur unsuccessfully tries to steal Boland's buried treasure and instead gets his just deserts. As always, Wilhelm knows what will tickle the funny bones of young readers; they will snicker at Tyrone's dreadful behavior, shifty eyes and caustic tongue. Ages 6-8. (Mar.)
