Julia Eccleshare's comment:
A mix up with eggs has a placid duckbill dinosaur being brought up by T-Rex’s – clearly this causes hilarious problems. With Julia Donaldson’s irresistible, rollicking rhyming text and David Roberts’ glorious illustration, this bold and brilliant picture book crackles with wit. A future classic is born as is a terrific new partnership of author and illustrator too.

SynopsisTyrannosaurus Drip by Julia Donaldson
Everyone knows that tyrannosauruses are big and scary, so when a placid duckbill dinosaur's egg ends up in the wrong nest confusion is sure to ensue! When the baby dinosaur hatches out, he's so out of place that his grisly big sisters call him Tyrannosaurus Drip. Poor little Drip: all he wants is a quiet life munching on water weed.

ReviewsPraise for Tyrannosaurus Drip : With scansion firmly in hand, Donaldson pens a rhymed tale of dino-heroism perfectly complemented by Roberts's comical cartoon scenes of toothy carnivores and trumpet-mouthed vegetarians . . . T. Drip is definitely a dino worth hooting over. -- Kirkus Reviews Brilliant fun from the creator of The Gruffalo, Slightly older kids will love this, and you adults will probably enjoy it too. --supernanny.co.uk Praise for The Gruffalo :
A modern classic. --The Observer
