A special 10th Anniversary Edition of this modern classic. 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.
Julia Donaldson says: If you’d like some hints on acting out the story at home or in a classroom,
you could take a look at www.picturebookplays.co.uk, which is a website I created when I was the Children’s Laureate and which has lots of ideas for dramatising picture books. You can even see a video of a class performing Tyrannosaurus Drip.
A special edition of the roaring, rollicking story Tyrannosaurus Drip by the fantastic pairing of Julia Donaldson and David Roberts. 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...Children will love this rhyming and playful tale from the dynamic picture book partnership behind The Troll.
The Tyrannosaurus Drip 10th Anniversary Edition comes complete with special bonus material and a gorgeous, deluxe cover. An absolute must for all Julia Donaldson and David Roberts fans!

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
