A rollicking romp around an old fashioned car wash—where DINOSAURS are the customers! How can a dinosaur stay dirt-free in the city? Welcome to the Dino Wash Deluxe, where dinos go to get soaped, scrubbed, and spotlessly clean. The Dino Wash handles it all: scales, spikes, wings, even frills and horns. BUT WAIT! There's a new customer in town: a T. rex with sharp teeth, long claws, and a mighty mean personality. What will happen when T. rex shows up? Filled with dinosaur facts and fun, this hilarious picture book reminds children that tough guys might not be as scary as they seem.

A fanciful dinosaur wash that's more than a little reminiscent of DreamWorks' Shark Tale.

For me, this was like coming in on the last book of a trilogy and I’d only read half of the first book.
