Once every thousand years, dinosaurs from around the world fight tooth and claw for the most prized title on this side of extinction—Prehistoric Games Champion. At the games, the brightest and strongest dinosaurs try their luck at conquering weight-lifting challenges and wrestling matches and dodging hits in the boxing ring. These dinos will do whatever it takes to get to the top, and they’ll use their claws, tails, wings, and teeth to become Jurassic heroes in this uproarious picture book.
With track-running raptors, gymnast Pteranodons, and basketball-playing Apatosaurs, there’s no end to the fun in this vibrant story. Martin Davey’s colorful pictures bring these roaring good times to life, and Janet Lawler’s romps and rhymes will delight parents and children alike. Take a seat in the stands and root for your favorites. But remember—only the best dinosaur can win!
