Three young brachiosaurs find themselves on a ravenous T-rex's menu in this prehistoric adaptation of The Three Little Pigs. When their mother sends the little dinosaurs out into the world to make their own way, she warns them to watch out for the big, bad Tyrannosaurus Rex. Tempted by the thought of a delicious dinoburger, the T-rex soon comes knocking, threatening to blow their houses in if the little dinos don't open the door. Infuriated by both the T-rex's desire to eat them and his insistence on calling them "little pigs," the three little dinosaurs band together to outsmart their dull-witted foe and slip away from his razor-sharp claws. This entertaining retelling teaches children that even the biggest, meanest bully will get his comeuppance in the end.

Wry humor, delightful anachronisms, and an unexpected plot twist make this cretaceous tale an unforgettable adventure. Vivid and detailed illustrations, including a Dinomen Mars poster and a dartboard with the T-rex's picture taped to the center, supplement the story's inherent irony and humor. With creative finds to discover in every reading, children and adults will enjoy this hilarious fable even more than the original classic.
