Synopses & Reviews
"The fourth book in Wheeler and Gott's picture-book series that mashes up the athletic with the extinct brings readers courtside as the carnivorous Meat face off against the herbivorous Grassclippers. This duo has a good thing going, and they don't mess with their formula, offering the breathless rhymes, fouls and fast breaks, and down-to-the-final-second twists readers have come to expect ('Raptor takes an outside shot./ En fuego! Ouch! The Meat is hot!'). And as in the previous books, they use the final scene to tease the next installment: 'Tickets go on sale at noon / Dino-Football's coming soon!' Ages 5 9. (Mar.)"

When the plant-chewing Grass Clippers face the red-toothed Meat on the basketball court, it's a showdown of pre-hysteric proportions. Herbivores and carnivores face off in a close game that includes dunks, alley-oops, and, of course, celebrity dinos with courtside seats.
