Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Think of the History Channel's Jurassic Fight Club, Jinny Johnson's Dino Wars (Abrams, 2005), and maybe toss in a bit of Bakugan, and you'll know the approach in this slender series. O'Hearn pairs dinos for face-offs, mentioning—but disregarding—variations in dates and distance that would make such confrontations unlikely. His brief texts offer data on the protagonists' size and their probable defenses, weapons, and attack styles. He then presents an imagined battle between each pair, ending with a victory for one. Possible unfamiliar terms are defined at the bottom of the page and again in the glossary (with phonetic pronunciation). "Fierce Fact" boxes pop up here and there, modest illustrations abound, and a teensy list of further reading and the FactHound site are included. Johnson's grabber is still in print.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
