9780060502522: T. Rex Trick-or-Treats

It's the darkest, scariest night of the year . . .

and T. Rex can't decide what he wants to be for Halloween. Everything he thinks of just isn't uniquely frightening enough. Join T. Rex and his friends as he tries to figure out the perfect SCARY costume for trick-or-treating. Is it a bat? Or a cat? Or maybe a jack-o'-lantern?

Lois G. Grambling and Jack E. Davis's delightful, FRIGHTFUL tale teaches that sometimes, what you need just might be in the last place you look -- yourself.

About the Author:

Lois G. Grambling has written numerous award-winning picture books, including Can I Have a Stegosaurus, Mom? Can I? Please!?, illustrated by H. B. Lewis; The Witch Who Wanted to be a Princess, illustrated by Judy Love; and Daddy Will be There, illustrated by Walter G. Kessel. She lives in upstate New York with her husband, Arthur.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. Kids trying to avoid going as Harry or Hermione (again!) on Halloween will relate to this seasonal standout, as light as its Tyrannosaurus rex protagonist is massive. Determined to be the scariest trick-or-treater in his neighborhood, in which humans evidently live shoulder-to-shoulder with anthropomorphic dinosaurs, T. Rex frets when pals Diplodocus, Stegosaurus, and Iguanodon preempt his most frightening costume ideas. In the end, he realizes that his mouthful of "long sharp pointy teeth!" and generally menacing physique require no disguise to be scary. Grambling's pared-down language, mouth-tickling adjectives, and repeating words and story patterns are right on target for her audience, members of which aren't likely to mind that this most predictable of trick-or-treat reversals is somewhat overused. Davis neatly manages potential anxieties surrounding the dinos' intentions, outfitting his dinosaurs with disarming googly eyes and overbites and portraying the shrieking, fleeing human trick-or-treaters as homely and gullible. Children's sympathies will lie squarely with the reptiles to the end. Jennifer Mattson
