In this book, J.J. Johnson gives just the right funny touch to the voice of twelve-year-old Iggy, and occasionally to his little brother Oz. Oz is convinced there are monsters in the attic. Iggy goes to prove him wrong at 3 a.m. and discovers that yes, there are some toothy little predators in the attic, indeed.

Soon the toy dinosaurs are roaming the neighborhood, flopping over Toy-Story style when adults come near, and generally eating people’s hot dogs off their grills and munching on their flowers. How the two brothers and some friends and enemies figure out how to work together and solve the problem takes the rest of the book.

Parts of this book are quite funny. It’s a very good read for kids–and yes, for kids at heart like me. I’ll give it 4.5 stars. * * * * 1/2
