BOOK NOOK REVIEWS: Lois G Grambling








***In celebration of one of my favorite times of the year, come join the fun as I romp through adorable holiday themed picture books as we count down to Halloween***



Title: T. Rex Trick-or-Treats
Author: Lois G Grambling
Illustrators: Jack E Davis
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Ages: 4 to 8

Synopsis: It's the darkest, scariest night of the year and T. Rex can't decide what he wants to be for Halloween. Maybe his friends Diplodocus and Iguanodon can help him decide before it's too late to go trick or treating!

Why you should read it: Universal themes like what will you wear to go trick or treating appeal to me because Fall is my favorite time of the year and Halloween is the beginning of the holiday season. Maybe it's the delightful illustrations created by the award winning Jack E Davis or maybe it's because I wrote a somewhat similar story two years ago before I even discovered this one that made me appreciated Ms. Grambling book. Either way, younger readers will enjoy going along on T. Rex's journey to select the most perfect costume to scare up a little fun on Halloween!

Like-O-Meter Rating: 5 out of 5...grab it!

  1. My kids have out-grown picture books, but not me. I just re-read Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day today. I think I might have to check out T Rex.

  2. The day I stop reading children's books is the day I stop breathing. So as long as these books are written, They will have at least one more reader.
