Velocitchy-raptor, book 3 in the hilarious Dinosaur Rescue series by Kyle Mewburn and Donovan Bixley, sees Arg trying to escape the clutches of a hungry Quetzalcoatlus (pronounced Kwet-zal-ca-AT-lus). Arg is trying to keep himself dry in a storm using his dried devil frog when a Quetzalcoatlus swoops down and snatches the frog, with Arg still attached. He’s taken to the dinosaur’s nest where he meets a baby velociraptor. They escape from the nest and Arg takes the baby home to hide it safely in his cave. Unfortunately Arg seems to be allergic to velociraptors and breaks out in itchy sores. If that wasn’t bad enough, his sister would have the velociraptor for dinner if she found it. Can Arg get the baby to safety?
Velocitchy-raptor is another hilarious and disgusting addition to the Dinosaur Rescue series. Kyle and Donovan once again introduce us to snippets of prehistoric life, from the bizarre leisure time activities of Arg’s family and how to talk to stone age people, to the not-very-useful guide to dinosaur names and the many uses of Old Drik’s toenail goo. Velocitchy-raptor will leave you with a sore stomach from laughing or a very sick stomach from this snot and pus-filled adventure. Recommended for 7+ 9 out of 10
