KIRKUS REVIEW

Giving Davis plenty of chances to show a very toothy T. Rex sending hapless trick-or-treaters fleeing in pop-eyed terror, Grambling crafts a tale of an increasingly frustrated dino unable to settle on a sufficiently scary Halloween costume. Not that he needs the disguise; dripping, shark-like dentifrice to the fore, T. Rex not only elicits screams from the costumed children who come to the door, he even makes his vegetarian buddies Stegosaurus, Diplodocus and Iguanodon nervous. When they convince him at last just to go out as himself, T. Rex exchanges his frown for a smile—that has an even more traumatic effect on everyone. Here’s a holiday tale sure to leave young audiences with toothy grins of their own. (Picture book. 6-8)
