Revenge of the Dinotrux by Chris Gall - OPTIONAL

Gall, Chris  Revenge of the Dinotrux  Hachette, 2012.  $16.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.  

This is a story about mechanical dinosaurs that get tired of being poked and played on by the visiting school kids, so they break out of the museum.  They go about town wreaking havoc, but soon join a school to learn some manners.  One day the dinotrux’s didn’t come back from recess and the children are missing.  When the teachers search for them, they find them in the woods and the Dinotruxs are acting as a playground for the kids.  

This book might appeal to boys who like trucks and dinosaurs.  It’s hard to read aloud because dinosaur names are hard enough on their own, but this author has combined dinosaur names with truck names that just sound confusing.
