Two very hungry dinosaurs discover a time machine and are instantly transported to America in 2018, where they are delighted to find themselves surrounded by food (including pizza and doughnuts), but soon less excited to find themselves surrounded by policemen with guns--so they escape to the time machine, not knowing where it will take them next.

Booklist - 07/01/2018 Two treat-oriented T. rex get the trip of their lives in this time-traveling romp. They make short work of the human time traveler who shows up in their prehistoric forest (“Hey look, food”), but upon investigating the strange machine left behind, they find themselves transported to the strangest of places: modern-day America. After a few false starts at a drive-through, the dinosaurs soon realize the full potential of this utopia they’ve arrived in (“The food comes to us!”). Of course, there is the problem of people, unused to a pair of T. rex in their midst. After an altercation with the police in the middle of the Donut Festival, it’s back to the time machine, where the friends have a dino-sized temper tantrum: “I missed my CHANCE at a doNUT!” (Their info gadget mishears: “I want to dance with King Tut?”) And off they go on an Egyptian adventure. Chapman’s buoyant illustrations will keep readers giggling, and the dialogue bubbles will make for high-energy read-alouds. Sparkling streams of color add a galactic touch to this wacky adventure. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
