Description


“I have a gigantic head with long pointy teeth, and a great loud roar.
 
I’m a huge ferocious hunter. I am . . .
 
a Tyrannosaurus.”
 
A little boy pretends to be different dinosaurs–and even a baby dinosaur just hatching from his shell–until his mother joins him with a snack and plays the role of mother dinosaur.
_________________________________

In spare words and vibrant illustrations, a young child mimics the actions of several different dinosaurs as he imagines he is one of them. After each spread showing the boy pretending, readers turn the page to find each dinosaur the boy imagines. Anna Grossnickle Hines's ability to showcase a child's perspective makes I Am a Tyrannosaurus perfect for toddlers who love dinosaurs.

About the Author


The Reys were born in Hamburg, Germany. Hans Augusto Rey (1898-1977) met his wife-to-be, Margret (1906-1996), at a party in her father's home in Germany; when he first caught a glimpse of her, she was sliding down the banister. In their twenties and thirties they lived in Paris and in Rio de Janeiro, where Hans sold bathtubs in villages along the Amazon River. Eventually Cambridge, Massachusetts, became the Reys' home and community. Throughout their lives the Reys created many lively books together, including SPOTTY, PRETZEL, and lift-the-flap books such as HOW DO YOU GET THERE? The manuscript of the first Curious George books was one of the few items the Reys carried with them on their bicycles when they escaped from Paris in 1940. Eventually, they made their way to the United States, and CURIOUS GEORGE was published in 1941. Their incorrigible little monkey has become an American icon, selling millions of books and capturing the hearts of readers everywhere. CURIOUS GEORGE has been published in many languages, including French, German, Japanese, Afrikaans, and Norwegian. Additional Curious George books followed, as well as such other favorites as CECILY G. AND THE NINE MONKEYS and FIND THE CONSTELLATIONS.

Praise For…


Review, Kirkus Reviews, May 15, 2011:
"Second time's also a charm for this close cousin to I AM A BACKHOE (2010)....a broadly popular topic enhanced with light brushes of fact, wrapped in family warmth and presented in a comfortably formulaic way."
