Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Wheeler and Gott already proved they have a winning formula with Dino-Hockey (2007) and Dino-Soccer (2009), and there's plenty for dinosaur/sports fanatics to enjoy in this latest installment (the final page hints at a basketball follow-up). It's a beautiful day in Jurassic Park (ballpark, that is), and the herbivores and carnivores are taking the field for the season's final game. The crowd is enthusiastic—and similarly extinct. Wheeler's sturdy, concise couplets provide a nicely percussive play-by-play: “Stego rumbles down the line./ Compy calls, 'This one is mine!'/ Gloves the ball. Throws him out./ That's what baseball's all about!” (The dinosaurs' nicknames are set in contrasting type; a list of their full names can be found in team rosters displayed on the Jumbotron on the first page). Gott nails the drama of high-stakes game with a series of skewed perspectives and never overplays the comedy—his dinosaurs, with their imposing heft and improbably balletic grace, are more than capable of conveying the sublime absurdity of it all. Ages 5–9. (Apr.)
Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
What more could a little kid want than a book that includes sports playing dinosaurs? This time the dinos are playing baseball. And it is a close game, with fine pitching, good hitting, and an angry team manager who gets thrown out of the game. The story is told in rhyme and the illustrations, though cartoonish, give a feel for what the different dinosaurs look like. The vegetarian animals are on the Green Sox team and the meat eaters are on the Rib-Eye Reds team. Fortunately, they do not try to eat the Green Sox. The game starts out as a pitchers' duel, but after the Green Sox' manager is thrown out of the game, his team begins to hit the ball. They are up 3 to zip, but Reds come steaming back and take the lead 3 to 4. By the bottom of the ninth, the Sox have tied the game up. It is up to Apatosaur to win the game for them. Strike one, then two, before old Apty smacks the ball over the wall. I think the readers will enjoy the game. When they are not playing baseball, the dinos play other sports: soccer, hockey, and basketball. Reviewer: Sarah Maury Swan
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—In this third book about the Rib-Eye Reds (carnivores) and Green Sox (herbivores), the teams are all over the diamond playing fast-action baseball. The rhyming text sweeps youngsters through the game with appropriate baseball idioms peppered throughout. Wheeler includes on-the-field plays as well as typical baseball-crowd fun like a manager's tantrum, a seventh-inning stretch, and a visit to the snack bar. Gott's illustrations are masterful at catching the leaping, running action of the battling behemoths and giving each spread a stop-action, "you are there" feel. The final page promises a rematch on the basketball court in the next book. Libraries looking to satisfy dinosaur lovers as well as sports enthusiasts will find this title an easy sell.—Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI

    DINO-BASEBALL

    In DINO-BASEBALL, the plant-eating Green Sox face off with the Rib-Eye Reds and baseball won't be the same again! The game is a pitcher's duel as it's tied "zip to zip" - that is until the Green Sox's manager goes "snout to snout" with the dodo umpire - and gets booted from the game! But with their veggie-powered bats the Sox score three runs. Tied up in the bottom of the ninth - can Apatosaur save the day by saving the game? "Take Me Out to The Ballgame" takes on a new meaning as this story written in playful rhyme takes reader into the ballgame with the Green Sox. From fans plucking the ball out of sky to bats smacking and splitting - the reader is sure to enjoy every page of DINO-BASEBALL.

    DINO-BASEBALL is illustrated by Barry Gott. Readers will enjoy the illustrations in this book as they are delightful, colorful and fun. The illustrations in DINO-BASEBALL are sure to put a smile on the reader's face.
