I love a bit of comedy and whilst this originally started out as a humorous blog, the book of Hugh's takes on a new light as we all laugh at the unfortunate condition of T-Rex and his short arms. What occurs within this book is a huge selection of every day tasks that most of us take for granted that poor ol' T-Rex struggles to manage.

Add to the fun drawings that have a wonderful childishness about them that brings the humour across wonderfully and all round, with just a slight amount of colour, it really gives the reader a good chuckle. The only thing that I'd also have liked to have seen is how the author came up with each of the idea's within, it would have broken the illustrations up a little and of course given the reader the chance to appreciate each cartoon fully.

This comic is really delicious and funny. I bought three copies, one for me and two for a couple of friends.
I find it a very good product any comic collector or t-rex humor fan would appreciate to have, and I'm extremely satisfied to have chosen it as a present as well.
The price is not high at all and totally worth the expense; shipping is fast and I didn't experience troubles of any kind with it.
Every page shows a single illustration which, with delicate humor and pleasant drawings, makes you laugh and sympathize for the unfortunate lizard king. There's no real plot: it's all about presenting a series of everyday life situations having short arms turns into quite a nightmare. It's a light-reading comic which is nonetheless witty and made with intelligence.
Printing is black and white with some wisely chosen red details that meaningfully highlight single parts of the scenes.
It comes with a hard cover, has very pleasant design, layout and paper.
To sum up, not only it's extremely pleasant to read, but it's also a beautiful object.
I really recommend it. Check the blog of the author to get and idea of the content: I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

I would recommend this book for anyone who wants a light hearted giggle, our favorite was T-Rex trying to put his eye drops in, but there were very many more

I was following the comics online and thought they were hilarious. Now with many more strips and in a nice hardback book!

I bought this book for my girlfriend as a joke, and she really enjoyed it. It has a drawing of a T-rex attempting something and failing humerously on every page. Most of the pictures managed to make me and the girlfriend smile/laugh.

Ideal as a light-hearted extra gift for someone special who like a good laugh and dinosaurs, or children who are interested in dinosaurs.

Serious tears of laughter with this. Not as twisted as "101 things to do with a dead cat" (which for some reason offends people), but a poor t-rex, just trying to get on with his weeny small arms and incredibly large head.
Sun cream was my favourite.

An amusing little book, must admit I've never really thought about those tiny little front legs trying to do things.
Only criticism is that being an American author, some of the references were puzzling. I bought it for my grandson and he likes it a lot.

This book is such fun! Hugh Murphy's T-Rex Trying keeps you laughing with each turn of the page. The witty drawings and classic sense of humour put a smile on my face every time I flip through this fantastic book. Well done!
