Booklist - 09/01/2016 This action-packed book combines twin obsessions for many children: dinosaurs and race cars. Readers follow the dino racers into the pits as they compete against each other in a series of thrilling, high-speed events, in front of a dinosaur audience whose spikes, long necks and tails, and sheer bulk add to the drama. Three separate races are presented in fascinating detail. First, Allo and Stego compete in a quarter-mile drag race. Next, a three-day off-road race kicks up plenty of dust. And lastly, vehicles line the track for a stock-car race. Gott’s digital illustrations explode off the page while rewarding observant readers with many inside jokes for dinosaur-lovers. Race-car driving comes alive with scenes of dinosaurs tailgating, surging into the stadium, working in pit crews, and parading to the start of the stock-car race. Car-crazy kids will also drool over the flashy race cars. Simple, rhymed couplets underscore the story’s action. Check out this team’s other dino-sports books, including Dino-Boarding (2014) and Dino-Swimming (2015). - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
