Staff Reviews

Dinotrux breaks the mold by bringing together kids' two favorite themes: dinosaurs and trucks! Ever wonder what trucks and cars were really like billions of years ago? They weren’t as nice as they are today. Chris Gall once again amazes with his attention to detail as he guides kids through the evolution of Dinotrux!

Brandi S.


The original, rip-roaring mash-up of dinosaurs and trucks that inspired the Netflix TV series!

Millions of years ago, DINOTRUX ruled the earth! These mighty part-truck, part-dino demolition dynamos rumbled, plowed and bulldozed their way through the centuries. In this toddler-friendly adventure, Chris Gall guides readers on a safari through the wild world of these mechanical monsters of prehistoric times, from the nosy Craneosaurus and the mega-hungry Garbageadon to the big bully of the jungle, Tyrannosaurus Trux!

Look out for a fold-out surprise at the end! And when you're done, check out the next books in the Dinotrux series, Revenge of the Dinotrux and Dinotrux Dig the Beach.
