LoveReading View on The T-Rex Who Lost His Specs!

It’s hard to know what will make children laugh most in this tale of a short-sighted T-Rex – will it be the description of him going out in his sister’s knickers and his granny’s vest, or the bit where he accidentally washes his face in the toilet? Jeanne Willis’s rhyming text is typically boisterous, and Tony Ross manages to make the hapless T-Rex both ridiculous and imposing. It finishes with the kind of shock-ending that is this pair’s speciality, one which after a moment’s stunned silence will have children roaring with laughter again. ~ Andrea Reece


The T-Rex Who Lost His Specs! Synopsis

Meet the accident-prone T-Rex. First he loses his glasses, then he has one disaster after another: he can't tell his breakfast toast from a slipper, then he mistakes a prehistoric owl for his bath towel! A laugh-out-loud tale from legendary picture book duo Willis and Ross.
