A brilliant story which shows that real strength is on the inside and the bravest thing you can do...is have the courage to be yourself. Join Reg and his friends on a riotous romp through the jungle. This meaty story, served up with a generous helping of vegetables, is the laugh-out-loud tale of a dinosaur who dares to be different.


T-Veg The Tale of a Carrot Crunching Dinosaur by Smriti Prasadam-Halls

Reginald is a T-rex like any other. He has a fierce roar, gnashing teeth and mighty footsteps that thunder through the jungle. There's just one teeny, tiny thing that sets him apart...While the other T-rexes munched on juicy steak...Reginald the T-rex ate crunchy carrot cake! Made to feel that he doesn't quite belong, Reg sets out to find a new life...with disastrous results! But later on, when his friends and family get into trouble, Reg is the only one who can help. Will he be in time to save the day?


'This is a fresh and funny tale of daring to be different.' Selected for the Picture Book Category in the Children's Previews. The Bookseller
