Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–It is Halloween night, and T. Rex cannot decide what to wear. All of his pals have taken the best and scariest costumes–ghost, witch, skeleton. He wants to be really scary, and when his friends' suggestions result in a Very Big Frown, T. Rex is convinced that he is frightening enough as is. The story is slight, yet it will satisfy young listeners. Davis has created a nonthreatening dino world with his cartoonlike line-and-watercolor illustrations. Children will enjoy poring over details in the illustrations, but the occasional sharp-eyed parent may object to the unwrapped, home-baked treats that the dinos and kids have stuffed into their treat bags. The attractive cover will make this an easy sell; all in all, it's a fun addition to Halloween collections.–Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. Kids trying to avoid going as Harry or Hermione (again!) on Halloween will relate to this seasonal standout, as light as its Tyrannosaurus rex protagonist is massive. Determined to be the scariest trick-or-treater in his neighborhood, in which humans evidently live shoulder-to-shoulder with anthropomorphic dinosaurs, T. Rex frets when pals Diplodocus, Stegosaurus, and Iguanodon preempt his most frightening costume ideas. In the end, he realizes that his mouthful of "long sharp pointy teeth!" and generally menacing physique require no disguise to be scary. Grambling's pared-down language, mouth-tickling adjectives, and repeating words and story patterns are right on target for her audience, members of which aren't likely to mind that this most predictable of trick-or-treat reversals is somewhat overused. Davis neatly manages potential anxieties surrounding the dinos' intentions, outfitting his dinosaurs with disarming googly eyes and overbites and portraying the shrieking, fleeing human trick-or-treaters as homely and gullible. Children's sympathies will lie squarely with the reptiles to the end. Jennifer Mattson

Our son loves dinosaurs, so naturally when Halloween rolled around, he wanted to be a T Rex. This book is adorable! He LOVED it and we seem to read it about every night (even now that Halloween is over). It is slightly repetitive to read (lots of repeating long dinosaur names) but the story is cute. The illustrations are fun and our son just loves talking about T Rex's "long, sharp, pointy teeth." Enjoy! Great book!!

My grandson brought this book when visiting. Then I read it to he and the granddaughters. Next time they visited, the granddaughters wanted to read "T-Rex Trick-or-Treats" so I had to order one for my house. Cute book!

Parents of young children looking for picture books to introduce Halloween and its customs could do worse than this book. The titular character is trying to find a scary costume for Halloween. His three friends, the Diplodocus, the Stegosaurus and the Iguanodan, help him in his quest.

There is nothing remotely scary about this book and that is a plus. The vocabulary and tone are best for the preschool audience. Parents may balk at the sight of apples, baked goods and other handmade goodies but this book is not intended to be a step-by-step safety guide for Halloween. Instead, it is a fun Halloween adventure that tackles one of the biggest anxieties kids face: What will I wear?

My sons (ages 8 and 7) didn't find the book as interesting as another Halloween-themed picture book, The Ghost of Nicholas Greebe, we recently read. However, that reflects their ages and the volume of bedtime books we read, not any particular fault with this book.

In summary, I recommend this picture book for children ages 4-7. The light-hearted story won't leave a lasting impression but it will make a fun introduction to Halloween.
