Rhyming couplets set the scene for a fantastical sports event: a hockey game played between opposing dinosaur teams: the Meat-Eaters and the Veggiesaurs. . .many children will be caught up by the inventive premise, the slapstick humor, and the energy in the words and pictures.

It's prehistoric pandemonium on ice as the toothy Meat-Eaters (in red jerseys) and the tough Veggiesaurs (in green) face off in a wild championship game. Wheeler's commentary—"Veggiesaurs have got the puck! / Stego licks his stick for luck. / Tricera slips. He spins. He reels! / Watch out—check! And Raptor steals!"—captures the slapshot-quick pace.

The game begins at half past six,

when dinos grab their hockey sticks.
