he dinosaurs that appeared in
by Penny Dale make an encore in this fun picture book that shows these multi-talented creatures playing a new role – manning rescue vehicles.
t all begins when the dinosaur train is chugging along and a truck stalls on the track ahead of the train. The call quickly goes out, '
Calling Dinosaur Rescue. Dinosaur Rescue, please come quickly! Help! Help!
he Dinosaur fire rescue truck and ambulance rush to the scene of the mishap. The Dinosaur police car races on a road next to the steam engine and the officers try to get the train to stop. In the air, a helicopter hovers over the truck on the track.
Stop! Stop! Stop!
' everyone shouts. '
' The train stops just in time.
ow it is time to clear the truck off the tracks and then go back to the Dinosaur Rescue yard where the equipment can be cleaned and then everyone can take a nap!
ig, bold, colorful illustrations of the rescue equipment and the dinosaurs make this a book that will appeal to any youngster who loves trucks and dinosaurs. It isn't often the two come together in one book!
