Synopsis

Millions of years ago, DINOTRUX ruled the earth! These mighty part-truck, part-dino creatures rumbled, plowed and bulldozed their way through the centuries, demolishing anything in their path.

From the nosy Craneosauraus and the mega-hungry Garbageadon to the bully of the jungle, Tyrannosaurus Trux, Chris Gall guides you on a safari through the wild world of these mechanical monstes of prehistoric times. So buckle up for the ride--you'll never look at Dad's rusty old pickup the same way again!

Whatever happened to the Dinotrux? A big bonus foldout page inside reveals all!
