The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award winning Simon James is heart-warming in this story about the importance of dads! The terrifying tyrannosaurus rex is feared by all the creatures. He is very big, very fierce and has a very, very load ROAR. The only creature not afraid of him is the tiny dinosaur who hatches in his cave and adopts him as Dad. How a small creature and a very large creature bond and the roles they play in each others lives is wittily captured in text and pictures.
Rex by Simon James
This is a heart-warming story about being a dinosaur step-dad. Once upon 400 million years ago a terrifying tyrannosaurus roamed the earth. He spent his days raging through the jungle scaring every dinosaur he saw with his fierce roar. One night, while he is sleeping, an abandoned egg cracks open and out pops a teeny, tiny baby dinosaur who immediately thinks that the tyrannosaurus is his dad! And so begins the touching story of a little dinosaur and his search for a dad.
This is a brilliant story for all dinosaur fans and also a sensitive look at relationships and growing up, perfect for families, schools and libraries.
