Book Review: Iggy and Oz: The plastic Dinos of Doom By: JJ Johnson on tour with JustRead Tours

Iggy & Oz- The Plastic Dinos of Doom

What if hundreds of plastic toy dinosaurs suddenly came to life- Could you find a way to stop them...? 

Iggy Risner is your typical wise-cracking twelve year old. When his younger brother, Oz, wakes him in the middle of the night claiming he heard a monster in the attic, Iggy takes him upstairs to prove him wrong. But instead of a flesh-eating beast, they discover hundreds of their toy plastic dinosaurs that have mysteriously come to life.

When the dinos escape the attic and start terrorizing young kids in the neighborhood, and trampling flower beds, somehow Iggy, Oz, and their friends must catch the plastic dinos of doom before the damage escalates. But what do you do when your parent's doubt your story, and a group of clueless neighborhood bullies stand in the way? 

For Iggy & Oz- Catching the little beast may prove to be easier said, than done.

Hi, my name is J.J. and I love to write, read, and drink coffee. As I write this I’m sitting in a local brewery sipping a espresso. There are few things in life that I feel need precise division with no room for error, coffee is one of them.

I love comic books, writing fun adventurous Science Fiction, and wasting countless hours on Social Media.


When I selected this book for review, I had my 8 year old in mind. I did not realize that it would be loved by myself, my 8 and 6 year old. This book is narrated by Izzy. He is a 12 year old boy with a younger brother named Oz. This book had us laughing out loud. I love how the author deals with some topics that 12 and 9 year olds face. This includes: Parental relationships  (and the fear of waking your parents when they are sleeping), bullying, and what to do with annoying friends. (We love them anyways).  I love how the chapters are "Captain's Log: 001 or 002. This book features cute, likeable characters, an entertaining storyline and so much more. This is a great bed time read that your kids will want to read every night. 

My favorite quote: " One lesson I learned when as a wee little pup - life will shovel a bunch of stuff on you. All you need to do is move on and keep going" (Chapter 2) 

I received a copy of this book through JustRead and the publisher. All thoughts are my own.
