From the author of the sleeper hit T-Rex Trying, a sweetly funny new collection of drawings of T-Rex and his family being stymied by the modern world and their unfortunately short arms.
Thousands of fans fell for Hugh Murphy's first book, T-Rex Trying, which featured T-Rex trying and failing to do everyday tasks, from putting on a cardigan to jumping rope. In T-Rex Trying and Trying, the loveable lizard king is back . . . this time with his family, She-Rex and Wee-Rex. Featuring never-before-seen content and the best from the site, Murphy's 120 drawings feature:
. T-Rex trying to take a selfie
. She-Rex trying to catch a bouquet at a wedding
. T-Rex trying to change a diaper
. T-Rex trying to tell people he's choking
. Wee-Rex trying to crawl
. T-Rex trying to measure his inseam
. and many, many more
An adorable and hilarious book, this is the perfect gift for readers of all ages.
