School Library Journal - 08/01/2012 PreS-Gr 2—It's Mega Bowl Sunday in the Lava Dome, and a crowd of excited dinosaurs are watching the Greenblade Snackers play against the Redscales. The rhyming running commentary contains the terminology and all the play-by-play excitement of a televised game. "Kentro gets the takeaway!/This Snacker rookie saved the day." After the "Dino Halftime Show," the score is close, but the last play allows small, young Mussaurus to score the winning touchdown. Gott's illustrations of the tackles are more humorous than brutal, and he draws examples of good sportsmanship on and off the field. A detailed scoreboard and color-coded naming system in the text (the dinos' names are in green or red depending on their team) make this game easy to follow.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
