Publisher Comments:

In a hockey match unrivaled in prehistory, the Meat-Eaters take on the Veggiesaurs. Fans go wild in the stands as T.Rex and Triceratops face off, and the game is off to a rip-roaring start. An assist from Raptor gains the first goal for the Meat-Eaters ? but the naughty Pterodactyl twins, playing wingers, earn their team a penalty. The Veggies are quick to take advantage and Diplo scores. A tie game Join the fans and find out what happens. You'll have a front row seat, so keep an eye on Raptor. Hockey gets him pretty riled up and that's quite a set of teeth he's baring?

Review:

"Meat-Eaters and Veggiesaurs face off in this lighthearted but slim tale starring a sizeable roster of hockey-playing dinosaurs. Wheeler (Mammoths on the Move) presents a quick-fire play-by-play using exclamation point-studded rhymed couplets, albeit with mixed results. Much of the verse is action-driven and ably reflects the high-stakes, high-speed nature of the game ('Tricera slips. He spins. He reels!/ Watch out-check! And Raptor steals!'). Yet other passages are bland or static ('The score is tied now, 1 to 1./ The winner could be anyone'). And on some occasions, the author seems hard-pressed to pull off the rhyme: 'Another face off. Veggies rule!/ Allosaurus starts to drool.' Gott (What Do Teachers Do After You Leave School?) comically conveys the on-ice antics and competitive spirit among a wide array of prehistoric players with combative, bug-eyed expressions, and he wisely changes up the perspective for the viewing audiences at home, though a drab palette mutes the action somewhat. After some brawls and penalties along the way, the Veggiesaurs win the championship, ending the season. (Readers, however, are invited to stay tuned: 'Buy your tickets! Don't delay./ Dino-Soccer starts today!' Though diehard dino or sports fans may be enticed by the prospect of another contest, others are more likely to pass. Ages 4-9." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
