Lisa Wheeler has put together a vibrantly funny idea - dinosaurs and wrestling together in one book! Dinos gather for a night of Wrestlemania and get ready to cheer on their favorite champions. For lovers of wrestling there are bouts in every style from Greco-Roman to sumo, with the correct names for all the moves. And for dinosaur fans, each dinosaur is named and given a chance in the ring. Although I have to agree - why would TRex choose Greco-Roman when he has such short arms? The crowd has a great time watching each match until the final WWD showdown.
Whether dinosaurs or wrestling are your main interest, the vivid illustrations and rhyming text carry you through the rowdy evening of entertainment. This will be a hit for read-alouds, as well as for individual reading.
I read an e-book provided by the publisher through NetGalley. It will go on sale on October 1, 2013.
Both the author and illustrator have their own websites, if you would like to see what other books they have done.
