Animal Diaries: Tyrannosaurus Rex by Steve Parker


Animal Diaries: Tyrannosaurus Rex by Steve Parker

My name is T-Rex and this is my very own diary. Please read it so you can find out all about - ME! I'll tell you about the cool place I live in and what I like to eat. You can meet my family and the other dinos who live around here - some are weird, but others are very tasty! I hope you enjoy my diary - I wrote it with a bit of help from a human called Steve Parker. Animal Diaries are personal accounts written by young animal diarists. Sometimes funny, often scary, these first-hand accounts are highly entertaining, giving readers an intriguing insight into the life of each animal. Each book is a mixture of diary entries, informative extracts, sketches and fact-filled animal profile cards. Books are packed full of interesting information on the animals' habitat, diet, different stages of life and interaction with other animals. Incredibly vivid illustrations let young readers feel like they are immersed in the lives of the diarists, and may encourage them to start documenting their own adventures.
