Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In a unique hockey match, the Meat-eater dinosaurs take on the Veggiesaurs. This delightful rhyming book describes the match as it happens play by play. The game is tied. Join the fans and find out who wins the match. Children who are familiar with hockey and dinosaurs will enjoy this book the most. However, the poetic text lends itself to children who do not know either. The verse flows smoothly, and it is easily read to children. The illustrations show various dinosaurs on the ice clad in hockey attire. The details in the illustrations include different dinosaurs sitting in the stands, a score keeper, and even the names of the dinosaurs on the back of the jerseys. The text and illustrations are a wonderful combination, complementing each other well. This picture book will bring smiles and enthusiasm to young children. Reviewer: Nicole Peterson
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2
In this fast-paced and wild hockey championship, the carnivores in red jerseys (Meat-Eaters) take on the herbivores in green (Veggiesaurs). Clever rhyming couplets keep the game lively and slip in facts about dinosaurs ("Socks and jerseys keep them warm-/cold-blooded beasts in uniform") and the sport of hockey ("Safety pads protect their bones./Some have helmets of their own"). The players' names are highlighted in the appropriate team color throughout the text, enabling everyone to keep track while learning which species eat meat and which eat plants. The digitally rendered illustrations, featuring sculpted, wide-eyed creatures, lack polish but do bring out the chaotic spirit of the match. They also accentuate funny details, including a frenzied pileup of fans doing the wave. Just like in a real hockey game (or real dinosaur gathering), aggression takes over at times. However, the dodo bird makes an excellent referee and breaks things up right away: "Stego fumes inside the booth,/as Raptor searches for his tooth." The start of soccer season on the final page hints heavily at a sequel. An amusing pairing of a sporting event and prehistoric beasts.

Kirkus Reviews
It's prehistoric pandemonium on ice as the toothy Meat-Eaters (in red jerseys) and the tough Veggiesaurs (in green) face off in a wild championship game. Wheeler's commentary-"Veggiesaurs have got the puck! / Stego licks his stick for luck. / Tricera slips. He spins. He reels! / Watch out-check! And Raptor steals!"-captures the slapshot-quick pace. Recognizable dino types in full hockey gear flash back and forth between the goals in Gott's high-energy scenes, grinning and wielding human-sized (i.e., comically diminutive) sticks for a rambunctious dino-crowd. Some hard checking, a fight broken up by the dodo Ref and a late goal later, the Veggiesaurs emerge triumphant-but, look out, soccer season's right around the corner. There's many a tale featuring dinosaurs playing, being pets and even dancing, but here's an activity far better suited to their red-in-tooth-and-claw natures. (Picture book. 6-8)

    My daughter loves this book...

    If your child is like my soon to be 4 year old daughter and loves both dinosaurs and hockey this book is for you. This is her favorite book and she asks me to read it over and over again. We cannot wait until Dino Soccer comes out. The book is very entertaining and the pictures are great. I would definitely recommend it for my friends kids.
