Overview

Some fossilized dino dooky made its way into the pet food supply, and all of the Gingham County critters who ate it have reverted back to their ancient selves. Merle's a sabre-toothed kitty, Paco the goldfish is now a dangerous Megalodon, Wiley's new pet lizard, Lupe, has become a snarling T-rex, and poor Nate Farkles, the town vet, is up to his ears in dinosaurs. If only Grampa hadn't mistaken a doggy biscuit for a gingerbread cookie, he and Wiley might've had a chance of taming the deadly dinos. But it's never over 'til it's over with this hilarious duo--Grampa may be ancient, but he's agile!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Erika Clark
Rich with challenging vocabulary appropriate for the subject area, Jurassic Grampa maintains the reader's interest from beginning to end. Starting the hysterical and humorous adventure through Nostril Caverns, Wiley, Grandpa and the gang discover all types of prehistoric characteristics at the site. When Grandpa causes a large dinosaur egg to tumble down behind the group, they find themselves in the presence of Hans Lotion and his grandson, notorious criminals who obsessively talk with a "V" accent. The villains take Grandpa's treasured egg after surprising the group with the information that the egg is in fact a lump of dinosaur droppings. The next day at school Wiley presents one of his treasures found in the cave, Lupe the lizard, to the entire class. Lupe entertains the class and fascinates the teacher to the point that the students' science projects are put on hold to give the stunning lizard undivided attention. Suddenly Lupe transforms into a large intimidating T. Rex after nibbling on a "snack of Nature's Nuggets all-organic lizard pellets with actual bits of dried dragonflies." Can anyone stop the T. Rex? Will Wiley figure out the cause for this strange pandemonium? Read and see. Reviewer: Erika Clark
