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.
