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.

Not only do the illustrations live up to everything you'd expect from him but the underlying humor in the book made it a great book for Mommy too. My son calls his dinosaurs "Dinotrux" now and it offered him a whole new way to play "dinosaurs". It is a highly requested read from my 3-year old!!

This book would be perfect for a young boy as it combines two of their favorite subjects: dinosaurs and trucks (and other similar mechanical devices)! Colorful and detailed pictures vividly depict these ferocious creatures who ruled the lands long long ago. It is an extremely fun book that will fascinate either a reader or a listener.

Fabulous book for imagination! I loved the names and connections to the trucks we use today and mixing it with Dinosaurs. The illustrations were beautiful and very colorful. They definitely caught the eye and held my attention. I like the story too, the ending was great showing the dinotrux working with the humans. Boys K-2 grade would really like this book.

I hit a home run with this one! It is my youngest grandson's favorite book and now he has his very own copy and Gran gave it to him. It's a fun book and he enjoys i t frequently.

Originally I bought this book in the paperback version for my grandson and he loved it so much, it fell apart. So, I now replaced it with the hardcover version and he was so happy! He looks at it all the time and practically knows the whole story!
