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.
A book for all ages that will have you smiling and laughing.
So glad it has been released here in the UK 1st !!
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.
Sun cream was my favourite.
Ideal as a light-hearted extra gift for someone special who like a good laugh and dinosaurs, or children who are interested in dinosaurs.
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.
