I laughed so hard! This is adorable. I really wanted to see him happy at the end after all that he'd been through. Poor guy. I've shared this (and the the ensuing laughs) with co-workers and friends and everyone loved it. Very well done.

Great cartoons and fun read. Good book for the library (bathroom). Looking forward to his next creation, something about She Rex?
I have recommended "T Rex Trying " to many of my friends and family.

This book is definitely adult humor (but not in a censored way) and has many more pages than anticipated. We purchased it as a gift for our nephew, however my brother is getting way more fun from it for now!

I love this little book so much. My husband and I are huge fans of the T-Rex Trying tumblr, so I ordered a copy of the book as a gift for him. Every page is hilarious, and there's something really great about seeing it all together and on paper.

My fiance and I love the webcomic, so I made sure to buy this as soon as it came out. It is pretty hilarious! it has some comics from the web series, but it also has new comics.

The only downside is that the pages are pretty thin and cheap, but not enough to bring it down in stars.

Perhaps T-Rex should try and read this book, sadly, I don't think that he can.

This book is amazing. The illustrations are well done and the whole concept of the book just made me laugh. It's a really easy read seeing how there isn't really more than one sentence per page, but it's a good book for a quick laugh and to brighten your day a little.

T-Rex gets teased a lot in social media because of his short arms (we've all seen the memes on Facebook, I'm sure). This book, as well as the sequel, offers a collection of fun illustrations of the troubles that poor T-Rex would run into, if he were an otherwise ordinary guy in today's world. The premise is absurd, and the result is delightful!

I've given two of these as gifts and even months later both people mention them to me, post little clips on FB from the book or otherwise bring it up. Hilarious gift for the dino lover. Each page contains one drawing with a caption of 'T-Rex trying xxx' such as "T-Rex trying to paint a house" or "T-Rex trying to make the bed".
Quick easy read and worth the price. Printing is good, cover quality is good.
