9780060502546: T. Rex Trick-or-Treats

Join T. Rex and his friends as they try to find the perfect scary costume for Halloween trick-or-treating. Is it a bat? Or a cat? Or maybe a jack-o'-lantern? Or maybe T. Rex should just wear his big, toothy grin.

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.



Jack E. Davis has illustrated two picture books by Daniel Pinkwater: The Picture of Morty and Ray and Yo-yo Man. Other books he has illustrated include the New York Times bestseller Marsupial Sue by John Lithgow. He is a recipient of the New York Society of Illustrators Gold Medal Award for Humor. He lives and paints goofy pictures in Port Townsend, Washington.

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
