My 4-year-old son and I just love this gem of a dinosaur story!  Borrowed it from the library several times (reading it now for our dinosaurs unit study) and will probably borrow again in the future (if I don’t end up buying a copy).

Tyrannosaurus Drip by Julia Donaldson and David Roberts is a very entertaining, lyrical story of a baby duckbill dinosaur’s mistaken identity.  Because of a sneaky little compsognathus (I recognized this dinosaur at the Hollywood Dinos exhibit, thanks to this book!), baby duckbill dinosaur found himself  the odd part of the mean Tyrannosaurus family.  He ingeniously finds his way home and a way to keep the duckbill herd safe from the Tyrannosauruses.

The rhythm and rhyme of the text and the comical and colorful illustrations of Tyrannosaurus Drip was just so endearing.  It’s one of our all-time favorite dinosaur stories for young children.
