This latest offering from Gruffalo author Julia Donaldson sees her teaming up with illustrator David Roberts. A duckbill dinosaur egg is mistakenly hatched by a fierce, war-loving Tyrannosaurus family.
Little Tyrannosaurus Drip is vegetarian and peaceful and can't keep up with his adopted family. He eventually finds salvation in the arms of a Duckbill tribe where he realises he belongs. The mean Tyrannosauruses try to capture Drip and take him back to their home, only to realise that it might not be as easy as they think…
A rhyming text with a memorable refrain, along with a gentle anti-war message and bold, appealing illustrations, will make this book a welcome addition to any child's library.
