From the Inside Flap:

Once every thousand years, dinosaurs gather for the biggest competition of them all: the Prehistoric Games! These Triassic triathletes test their strength in races, wrestling matches, and a game of dodgeball that pits herbivore against carnivore for the chance to win. Jurassic judges rank running raptors, tussling triceratops, jumping maiasauras, and weightlifting allosaurs. Each one is hoping to be the best dinosaur of them all.

Join these mighty Mesozoic competitors in this tail-thumpingly hilarious story. Colorful illustrations complement the roaring rhymes, and a glossary ensures that even the tiniest troodons will read this tale again and again.
