4.5 / 7.0

The stark, stylized illustrations in this book fit perfectly with the old western theme of this classic cowboy tale… with a twist of dinosaurs. While the story is a little far-fetched (the thieves surrendering themselves because they want the credit for their bad deeds!) it’s silly and fun and a fantastic premise for a children’s book.
