School Library Journal - 08/01/2013 K-Gr 2—At the Dino-Wrestling Jamboree, the participants use six different styles to compete in the events: Allosaurus vs. Ankylosaurus in folkstyle; Tarbosaurus vs. Iguanodon in lucha libre; Stegosaurus and T. rex in Greco-Roman; Giganotosaurus vs. Triceratops in the sumo tradition; and freestyle and tag team. Many of the styles are probably unfamiliar to children, but not for long. The illustrations do a great job of depicting wrestling moves, the action in general, and spot-on facial expressions. As each event progresses, the naughty but amusing Pterodactyl Twins inevitably show up: "But this is not the Twins' event./Security throws them out the tent!" When the Twins' turn finally arrives, it's the pro tag team event, and they are "Ready to Rumble." In an homage to the WWF of the 1980s, it ends in a free-for-all that causes the tent to fall down. The rhyming text is fun to read with the dinosaurs' names in bold font in either red or green depending on their dining preference (carnivore = red, herbivore = green). Their wrestling gear is in the same hues. This action-packed, informational book will be snapped up by lovers of Wheeler and Gott's previous dino-sports titles, and by newcomers.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
