Dinotrux by Chris Gall (Guest Review)

Dinotrux Dinotrux by Chris Gall

Millions of years ago, DINOTRUX ruled the earth! These mighty part-truck, part-dino creatures rumbled, plowed and bulldozed their way through the centuries, demolishing anything in their path.

From the nosy Craneosauraus and the mega-hungry Garbageadon to the bully of the jungle, Tyrannosaurus Trux, Chris Gall guides you on a safari through the wild world of these mechanical monstes of prehistoric times. So buckle up for the ride--you'll never look at Dad's rusty old pickup the same way again!

Whatever happened to the Dinotrux? A big bonus foldout page inside reveals all!

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
It's a neat idea with good illustrations. I think it should be read out loud with enthusiasm but that's just the way I see it. Overall it seems like a young child could enjoy reading or having it read aloud. There is a page of literal, harmless potty humor that some people might think to be not appropriate. I'd say it's fine though and rather amusing if your child has ever smelled a road being paved. And a note to the adults, what do you think when you see the picture of sleeping deliveradons? haha.
