Dino-Racing

By Lisa Wheeler
Illustrated by Barry Gott

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 Diplosaurus actually fit inside a stock car? Barry Gott's illustraUons bring all the hilarious action to life. A high-interest addition to the successful lineup of Dino-Sports titles, this book is full of exciting and action-packed moments on the track and off-road.

  • Clever, easy-reading verse incorporates lots of dino names and terms specific to each auto-racing event.
  • Gott's art is kid-friendly, well researched, and highly funny.
