"In a prehistoric river in a prehistoric swamp,
Lived a heard of duckbill dinosaurs who liked to stand and chomp."
The duckbill dinosaurs live across the river from the T-Rex's. The duckbills are peaceful plant-eaters. The T's are scary meat-eaters. When a duckbill egg hatches in the T's nest, both the new baby and the T-Rex family must try very hard to get along.
But the little dinosaur, nicknamed Drip by his new family, soon proves he's not such a drip after all - in fact, he's a real hero!
Dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages will cheer for Drip in this timeless story about little versus big, by the author of the beloved and bestselling picture book, The Gruffalo.
