By D. Blankenship HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on May 12, 2012
Format: Hardcover
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.

My son loves trucks, and occasionally dinosaurs. He's almost 2.5, and loves to be read to. He particularly loves it when you can use funny noises while reading the book. ("SMASHING! ROOOOOOOARING!") He was a big fan of the original Dinotrux book, so I decided to pick this one up for him, as well.

It's good. The book is still a lot of fun, and he's asked for it numerous times. However, it's not quite as good as the original Dinotrux book. It's a bit wordy for a little kid's book like this, and there aren't as many funny noises as the original. It makes sense not to describe the Dinotruxs again, since they were described in the original, but the beginning of the book drags a little. Once the Dinotrux go to school, it's as funny as the original again. Definitely a hit in our house.

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.

The writing/story is "so-so" in my opinion, but it's not bad and this is a favorite in our house. Can't go wrong with the dinosaur/truck combination. The illustrations are a good feature of this book. I plan to buy more books by this author.

My son loves this book. It is the perfect combo of dinosaurs and trucks! The ultimate boy books. Smartly written to engage emerging readers . A year later and my son still reads it. Beware it not the same as the Netflix show so the characters are different.

My three year old grandson checked the dinotrux books out of the library over and over again so I bought him Dinotrux and Revenge of the Dinotrux. He is a happy boy! Even his older sister likes to listen in.

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!
