From the perennially popular author-illustrator Simon James, comes a heart-warming, funny story about being a dinosaur step-dad.

For kids who love dinosaurs - Rex is the story of becoming a dino step-dad by the ever-popular author-illustrator Simon James. Once upon 100 million years ago a terrifying tyrannosaurus roamed the earth. He spent his days raging through the jungle scaring every dinosaur he saw with his fierce roar. One night, while he is sleeping, an abandoned egg cracks open and what should pop out but a teeny-weeny baby dino who immediately thinks that the T-Rex is his dad! And so begins the touching, funny story of a little newborn dino and his adopted daddy... A perfect book for dads and their little ones to share together.

A lovely 'dad' story about a fierce t rex who adopts a teeny tiny dino. My two love dinosaur stories and their are plenty of dinos in this story to keep them happy. Beautiful illustrations and a sweet story.

Definitely a bedtime book that my son and I enjoyed together. Lovely story line about a baby dinosaur who 'adopts' his reluctant T Rex Dad! The illustrations are fab, and my son enjoyed reading out the dinosaur names.

This book is about a T. Rex dinosaur that was scary and scared all the other dinosaurs. One night a little dinosaur hatched out of egg in the cave called Rex. He was looking for a dad, and followed T. Rex everywhere, doing what he did, and T.Rex became his dad. The illustrations Are beautifully done, great book for any dinosaur lover, it's not a scary book, so would be a nice bedtime read too.
