Once upon a time a violent, mean, selfish Tyrannosaurus roamed the land, and all the other animals feared him. One day, while chasing other animals, the Tyrannosaurus falls into the ocean. The Elasmosaurus, who lives in the sea, saves his life, and the Tyrannosaurus says “thank you” for the very first time. From that day, the land creature and the sea creature become best friends. The author, Tatsuya Miyanishi, delivers a heartwarming story about friendship with vivid, brightly colored illustrations and endearingly drawn characters.
So we received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
So we have read another book by this author was liked it. So when we got to read this book I figured K would like it as he loves dinosaurs.
This is a great story about a dinosaur being a bully and when he gets saved by another dinosaur he learns how not to be a bully which I think is great, because he hears about how the dinosaur Elasmosaurus gets treated. This is what changes him to be nicer. He also learns to tell the truth and to be accepted from his new friend.
The issue I had was some of the pages seemed to be out of order, not sure what that was about as we would be in the middle of a sentence and then it would be cut off and replaced with something else. I hope this is fixed before publication.
