Description

The duckbill dinosaurs live across the river from the T-Rex's. The duckbills are peaceful plant-eaters. The T's are scary meat-eaters. When a duckbill egg hatches in the T's nest, both the new baby and the T-Rex family must try very hard to get along. But the little dinosaur, nicknamed Drip by his new family, soon proves he's not such a drip after all--in fact, he's a real hero

Dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages will cheer for Drip in this timeless story about little versus big, by the author of the beloved and bestselling picture book, "The Gruffalo.




About the Author
Julia Donaldson is the author of more than fifty books and plays for children, including "One Ted Falls Out of Bed", "The Snail and the Whale", "The Gruffalo", winner of the Smarties Book Prize, and "Tyrannosaurus Drip", a picture book from Feiwel and Friends. She grew up in London and now lives in Glasgow, Scotland, with her family.Philip Ardagh is over six feet seven inches tall with a big bushy beard. Not only is he very large and very hairy, but he has also written around sixty children's books for all ages. Currently a full-time writer living with a wife and two cats in a seaside town somewhere in England, he has been--among other things--an advertising copywriter, a hospital cleaner, a (highly unqualified) librarian, and a reader for the blind. David Roberts is so busy drawing pictures that no one is really sure what he looks like. We do know that he has illustrated several books for children and lives somewhere in England, but whether his home is near the sea or not is anybody's guess.



Praise For Tyrannosaurus Drip

Praise for Tyrannosaurus Drip: “With scansion firmly in hand, Donaldson pens a rhymed tale of dino-heroism perfectly complemented by Roberts’s comical cartoon scenes of toothy carnivores and trumpet-mouthed vegetarians . . . T. Drip is definitely a dino worth hooting over.”—Kirkus Reviews “Brilliant fun from the creator of The Gruffalo. Slightly older kids will love this, and you adults will probably enjoy it too.”—supernanny.co.uk Praise for The Gruffalo:
“A modern classic.”—The Observer
