I am a dinosaur,
otherwise known as
a terrible lizard.

Tyrannosaurus rex is a terrible dinosaur; of this, everyone is certain. But is this dinosaur really so terrible? He IS very big and very hungry. True, he might even eat his neighbors for lunch. But from his point of view, he can’t help it. After all, he’s not a vegetarian . . .

Praise for T Is for Terrible

“Dinosaur-crazed preschoolers will adore the whimsical account of a predator’s logic.”—Publishers Weekly

“The artwork glows with warmth and vitality . . . beautifully formatted and well-conceived . . . It has just a hint of scariness, with a bit of humor thrown in—exactly right for the youngest dinosaur fans. A small book, but one that should be very welcome in storytimes.”—School Library Journal

“The delicacy of the illustrations underscores [the dinosaur’s] wistful, carnivorous plight.”—New York Times Book Review
