Whoever heard of a vegetarian T Rex?

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...

Another winner from the author of The Gruffalo!

    Comments about Tyrannosaurus Drip:

    I love this book. I bought it for my son a few years back when he was three as he was a HUGE dinosaur fan. We have read it again and again over the following years. It has wide appeal, especially if you are a Julia Donaldson fan. It's lyrical text is engaging for young readers and my Year Two class have also requested it over and over. I love reading it as much as the children enjoy hearing it!

    Praise for "Tyrannosaurus Drip": "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""" "Brilliant fun from the creator of "The Gruffalo," Slightly older kids will love this, and you adults will probably enjoy it too."--supernanny.co.uk Praise for "The Gruffalo":
    "A modern classic."--The Observer
