* "Gall's dinosaur/machine mash-ups are, once again, the star of the show, commanding attention (and generating laughs) in every action-filled, rust-toned scene."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Young fans of all things big and noisy will make trax for this dynamic dino-diversion."
Kirkus Reviews

"Dramatic, full-page illustrations brim with the energy of these fierce machines.... A fun follow-up, appealing to old and new fans alike."—School Library Journal

"Chock full of personality.... This is sure to be a winner with elementary readers."—Library Media Connection

More About the Author

Chris Gall has been drawing pictures and writing stories for as long as he can remember. When he was caught drawing pictures on his desk in second grade, his teacher made him clean all the desks in the classroom. She suggested that he might be an artist someday. He won a Read Magazine Young Writer's Award in 7th grade, and that inspired him to write stories to go with his art. His artwork has been seen in almost every publication in America, including Time, Newsweek, People, Fortune, The New York Times, and the Washington Post. His first book, "America the Beautiful", was a Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book of 2004. "There's Nothing To Do On Mars" was a 2008 Kirkus Best Children's Book, and "Dinotrux" was a 2009 Publisher's Weekly Best Children's Book.

For those of you who have read or own Chris Gall's 2009 book, "DinoTrux," this new offering is an absolute must read and buy! The story takes up where DinoTrux left off. The archeologists have placed the uncovered monsters of a million or more years ago and placed them is a museum where the remains of all discovered extinct creatures go.

But wait! Are they extinct or are they merely dormant?

But wait again! For those of you who did not have the pleasure of reading Chris's first book, a bit of an explanation is on order I suppose.

Thousands and millions years ago monsters ruled the earth. We had creatures such as the dreaded Craneosaurus, Dozeratops, Rollodon, Garbageadon, Digasaurus, Firesaurus and many others. Of course the most fearful Tyrannosaurus Trux also roamed the country. After a large flash in the sky and a tremendous storm, these monstrous creatures became extinct; were buried and at the end of the first story, archeologist had dug their remains up, placed them in a museum where they waited and waited and waited.

As the story continues with this book, the monsters have finally had enough; enough prodding and poking by children. Enough of being swung on and ran across (The kids from the Kindergarten class were the worse by far). The dreaded Dinotrux decided to break out of their display cases, crash through the walls and rampage across the countryside.

Oh my...what will happen? What will happen?

Chris Gall, as with his first book, has combined the dinosaur with modern powerful earth moving equipment and heavy equipment and trucks to create these fearful beasts. Now if there are two things that most kids love they are dinosaurs and heavy equipment. Check in your local public or school library.

We had the Dinotrux book, and my kids love it so much. So we bought the Revenge of the Dinotrux, which they love it as well. It has a lot of imagination, and is greatly illustrated.

Format: Hardcover
In this highly anticipated sequel to Dinotrux, the dinotrux grow weary of all the screaming, banging and swinging they have to endure at the museum. They bust loose and create mayhem all over town. Look for funny little details such as the newspaper headline, "What Do They Want?" When the mayor demands the dinotrux go to school, it would appear they're just as wild as ever... until they learn to read (truck books, natch.) Soon they're roaring off again - this time to build a playground, perfect for "screaming, banging and swinging." Large full-color spreads on every page are full of action. According to the illustrator they were "created with the help of 30W synthetic motor oil, 4-bolt mains, and a competition clutch." Funny stuff, and something you'll definitely want to add to your collection. What's next? Bride of Dinotrux? I hope so!

This book.is about trucks and dinosaurs. What more can you ask for! It talks about manners in a silly way. This is the second time we buy this book. We gave the first one to a friend who loved it and then replaced it with a new one.

Honestly, I'm "mommy"--not a dinotrux fan myself. But these books delight my 6-year old son, so...we're enjoying them! not sure how well they'll 'age' if you follow me.

We have both Dinotrux books and love them both! They are funny and very creative. I like being able to read with 'voice' to my kids with these books.

This is a fun story as a follow up to the original Dinotrux. As a parent reading this multiple times per week I have to say it is a lot more enjoyable than the original! Fun names for the Dinotrux, and in the end they learn to work with children and appreciate them. My son picks this one to read most days of the week at bedtime.

Great follow-up to the first book. My boys ages 2 and 4 love the Dinotrux books. Then again, Chris Gall combined two of their favorite things, trucks and dinosaurs! Great idea.
