Booklist Review

Ages 4^-7. The dinosaur we hate to love is here in all its terrible splendor. Why are we fascinated with it? Maybe it's what scientists know about these tyrant kings: six-inch-long teeth serrated like steak knives, weight about six tons, and awesome jaws that could take a full-grown cow as a mouthful. What scientists aren't really sure about is whether T-Rex was a ferocious hunter or a scavenger who fed on the sick and the dead. T-Rex may have had a large brain that could have given it super-sharp senses, and this might have given it an advantage as a hunter. Washburn's dramatic paintings with lots of purples and greens do a good job of highlighting our most familiar--and feared--dinosaur. --Denia Hester


School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-4-T. rex would probably win any dinosaur popularity contest claws down, and this readable introduction to the species will only add members to its fan club. Realistic, highly colorful illustrations form a background for the informative text containing up-to-date information on this fearsome predator (and snippets on some of its kin). While not as dramatic in appearance as, say, William Lindsay's Tyrannosaurus (DK, 1993; o.p.) or as challenging as John Horner's authoritative Digging up Tyrannosaurus Rex (Crown, 1995), this title will be welcomed by younger dinophiles. Even if you own the above, or Elaine Landau's more comparable Tyrannosaurus Rex (Children's, 1999), you should still make room on your shelves for this attractive entrant to a solid series.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
