Penguin Putnam
A modern tall tale that brings together dinosaurs and cowboys.

Back when the old, old west was still as green as a bristlecone pine and cowboys were as common as warts on a Stegosaurus, one cowboy stood out among all cowboys. With the strength of an Iguanodon and the speed of a Utah Raptor, lasso-tossing, Pleiosaurus-riding Rocky is legendary. There isn?t a dinosaur in the land that would think of giving Rocky a lick of trouble. That is, until he meets T. Rex, the rip-roarin?est, snip-snortin?est, flame-breathin?est reptilian ever to stomp the earth. But Rocky is up to the challenge, and his efforts to tame T. Rex take the disagreeing duo on a Western adventure of epic proportion.

Baker & Taylor
After Rocky lassoes the most ferocious dinosaur in the West, T. Rex pulls him through fifteen states and three national parks before one of them is ready to yield.

& Taylor

Having developed a reputation as the best dinosaur tamer of all time, young Rocky isn't ready to relinquish his title and so works to prove that he can tame even the most fierce and ferocious of them all--the dangerous and notorious T. Rex!
Young Rocky puts his reputation as the best dinosaur tamer of all time on the line when he tries to tame Tyrannosaurus Rex, the most ferocious dinosaur in the old West.
