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.

Synopsis

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? 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.

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.

About the Author

Smriti Prasadam-Halls

Smriti Prasadam-Halls was first an editor in children’s books before turning her hand to writing. Her favourite place to write is actually in bed. This is possibly because she has slept in many weird and wonderful places: a tent in the rainforests of Borneo; a sleeper train jolting across India; a choppy ferry heading for Shetland; a lighthouse on the Mediterranean, a junk in the Hong Kong harbour and a Maharaja’s palace in the middle of a lake, to name but a few! She now lives in London with her family.

A Q&A with Smriti

What do you like best about being an author? Being able to go to work in my pyjamas.

Where is your favourite place to work? Richmond Library or at home, somewhere cosy.

What three things do you need every day before you pick up a pen / pencil? A comfortable spot. Absolute quiet. Coffee.

What are your five favourite things in the whole world? Try as I might I couldn't pick five, so here are seven, in no particular order: Iced buns with a cherry on the top. Listening to the same song over and over because I love it so much. Deer in the park. London at night. VERY spicy South Indian chicken curry. Staying up all night to finish a book. Adventures with my boys.

What are your hobbies? Cooking, reading, playing a collection of instruments (badly), film, theatre, Guardian crosswords, reading a bit more.

Have you any pets? To my children's perpetual misery, no. We kept five hives of bees when I was a child... but I'm not sure that counts.

Have you ever held an owl? Not yet, but I'd love to.

If you were the owl in this book, where would be your favourite place to roost? I'd roost in the tree right outside the children's bedroom, of course.

What was your favourite thing about the night when you were a child? Night time was – and still is – magical, mysterious and beautiful in a tingly, exciting way.
