Little Rex by Ruth Symes


Little Rex by Ruth Symes

A funny tale about a little dinosaur who wants to be the BIGGEST dinosaur EVER! Rex was the SCARIEST dinosaur in the whole world. He had the pointiest of pointy teeth, the sharpest of sharp teeth and the LOUDEST of LOUD ROARS! The trouble is everyone else thinks Rex is just a funny little tyrannosaurus. I'm not little, I'm BIG! Rex keeps telling them. Then one day he is looking after the eggs for his mum and dad when they start to hatch - and the baby dinosaurs are terrified to see a dinosaur as BIG as Rex!
