Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Scolded by his parents and teased by classmates, Reginald, a tyrannosaurus rex who does not likes meat, leaves home in hopes of finding acceptance among the herbivores.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 April #1
    Reginald (Reg) is a fairly typical T. Rex. He has "a fierce and mighty roar" and thundering footsteps, and he's a fast runner, leaper, and stomper, who gnashes his teeth "as every T. Rex should." But at dinnertime, Reg doesn't often feel like he fits in. "For while the other T. Rexes munched on juicy steak . . . Reginald the T. Rex ate crunchy carrot cake!" The only vegetarian of the herd, Reg is the object of mockery at school and home, so he decides to run away to more veggie-friendly environs. After a short-lived and unrewarding exploration into herbivore life, Reg heads back home. But en route, the vegetarian dinosaur has an opportunity to demonstrate his herbivore strength. Plenty of rollicking adventure packs the scenes of this vibrantly colored tale, which celebrates fruits, veggies, and bravery. Prasadam-Halls' bold rhyming text fits nicely with Manolessou's frolicsome array of smiley, big-toothed prehistoric creatures, rendered in lively fluorescent colors and stylized shapes. A fun read with an encouraging message about individuality. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
