DreamWorks gets behind the wheel of Dinotrux

In a six-figure deal, DreamWorks Animation has optioned rights to Dinotrux, an illustrated children's book that will be developed as a CG-animated film, Variety reported.

Written by Chris Gall, the 32-page book takes place in a fictional prehistoric age, when the world was ruled by Dinotrux, creatures that were part trucks, part dinosaurs, with species like the Craneosauraus, Garbageadon and Tyrannosaurus Trux plowing and bulldozing their way across the terrain.

Gall is a commercial illustrator who has written three other books, including There's Nothing to Do on Mars. Dinotrux will be published in April by Little, Brown.
