The story of a carrot-crunching dinosaur
By Smriti Prasadam-Halls and Katherina Manolessou, Frances Lincoln Children’s Books, 2015.
A laugh-out-loud tale of a dinosaur who dares to be different.
When I first picked this book up off the shelf I wasn’t too sure what I was going to find in the pages; however, I was very smartly entertained by what I found! I absolutely LOVE this book! The rhyme is effortless, the illustrations are childlike and fun, and the story is action-packed and entertaining. T-Veg takes you on a journey through the life of Reginald, a young Tyrannosaurus Rex, who unlike the rest of his T-Rex dinosaur family and friends who are known carnivores, is vegetarian.
Reginald ate BROCCOLI, Reginald at BEANS.
Reginald ate bowls and bowls of GARLIC, GRAPES and GREENS.
Reg grows tired of the other T-Rexes making fun of him, so he packs his dino-sack and leaves home in search of some herbivorous dinosaurs who he believes will make better friends. However, when he finds the ‘herbies’ he runs excitedly towards them, which scares them all off and they run away from him. His family and friends were missing him, so they went in search of Reg. They found him and he saves them from a tricky situation.
T-Veg is most definitely a book for all ages. I’ve read it to myself a few times and still it brings a smile 🙂
