Rex

By Simon James
Illustrated by Simon James

A heart-warming story about being a dinosaur step-dad.

Once upon 100 million years ago a terrifying tyrannosaurus roamed the earth. He spent his days raging through the jungle scaring every dinosaur he saw with his fierce roar. One night, while he is sleeping, an abandoned egg cracks open and out pops a teeny, tiny baby dinosaur who immediately thinks that the tyrannosaurus is his dad! And so begins the touching story of a little dinosaur and his search for a dad.

  • A brilliant story for all dinosaur fans and also a sensitive look at relationships and growing up, perfect for families, schools and libraries.
