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.
An amazing book for Dads to read to their children. This book is a must for all dinosaur fans but it also brings a more sensitive approach to understanding relationships and growing up. A lovely story for the whole family * Baby Buzz Magazine * A touching story about unconditional love, fatherhood as well as engaging issues such as adoption and single parent families. With beautiful illustrations and lots of different dinosaurs, this is perfect for bedtime and `roaring' aloud * Books for Keeps * A gentle and touching tale * Parents in Touch * A great book to introduce belonging. * The School Librarian *
