Tyrannosaurus Drip 10th Anniversary Edition Paperback – July 27, 2017 by Julia Donaldson (Author)

Reading this book (borrowed from the library) to my neighbor children made me laugh out loud. It was an instant sensation and every family wanted a copy to own. When my grandson got to be 4, I bought him a copy, too. It’s a real delight to read and full of all the things that make children ask for a story over and over. Check it out!

From School Library Journal Kindergarten-Grade 3—In this prehistoric setting, waterweed-eating duckbill dinosaurs live on one side of a river, and a “mean Tyrannosaurus with his grim and grisly bride” live on the other. “What a shame that bridges aren’t invented yet,” the Tyrannosauruses say. But then a duckbill egg accidentally lands in the T. rex nest via an egg-snatching Compsognathus. The hatchling is dubbed Tyrannosaurus Drip by his sisters because he prefers to eat plants and sings “Down with hunting! Down with war!” instead of singing “Up with hunting! Up with war!” Just as Drip discovers his true family, lightning strikes and, lo and behold, a tree bridge forms across the river. Hilarity ensues as the rather dense Tyrannosauruses attempt to cross. The dinosaurs are rendered in an Art Deco-influenced style, and the lines roll off the tongue like the rhymes of Dr. Seuss. Children will enjoy the repetitive lilt, and adults will appreciate how naturally it reads. Expressive characters enhance the humor, and the limited palette helps emphasize just how different the creatures’ worlds are. An enjoyable group read-aloud.—Kim T.
