The problem arises when the parents leave their child to continue his life as an independent adult. When he is faced with a wounded and vulnerable tyrannosaurus, will he worry first about his own safety or care for this natural predator? And how will the tyrannosaurus respond? This is a universal question that everyone faces at some time in their lives. Is it more important to keep ourselves absolutely safe, or to take a risk and reach out to others in need?
The characters and setting are created in the distinctive style Miyanishi is known for with cartoon style drawings and explosive colors. This vivid artistic presentation appeals to young readers, while the themes in the series, are great discussion starters and deal with emotions and situations that more advanced readers can explore in more depth. Highly recommended for K+.
A young Pteranodon is born (a long time ago), and his two parents raise him with great care. They teach him to eat well to be strong, to grow up to be kind, and to avoid the terrible tyrannosaurus. One day, the parents leave the young pteranodon. While he is exploring around his home, he finds a tyrannosaurus who has been trapped. He is scared, but remembers to be kind. The tyrannosaurus can't see him, so he pretends to be a tyrannosaurus to stay safe. Can these two creatures be friends?
I love the art and color scheme of this book. The textures in everything are great and the contrasting colors really jump out. The story is sweet and sad. I've read one other book by this author, and I have thoroughly enjoyed both.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Museyon Inc. and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
I like the overall message of not viewing those different from you as enemies but approaching each individual and assessing them based on their actions. However, I feel the writing was choppy and the illustrations were simple and fell flat.
(I received a digital ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.)
