Description
Which prehistoric performers are set to appear? Quick, take a look: T-Rex is here. His fang-tastic tango burns up the floor. Isn t that exciting? But wait . . . there's more. See some disco with the Duckbills, tap-happy raptors, Tracey Tops with body pops, and a moonwalk with Miss Maia. The All-saur All-stars are real twinkle toes. These dinos can do anything They boogaloo, twist and shout, jig, waltz, and samba. Kids love dinosaurs, and this loopy lineup of dancing creatures will have them laughing, moving, and joining in the fun. The rhythmic, rhyming text is happily musical, and the exuberant, colorful art features humorous touches throughout like witty judges comments, comic costumes, and wacky moves.
