by Julia Donaldson

The duckbill dinosaurs live across the river from the T-Rex's. The duckbills are peaceful plant-eaters. The T's are scary meat-eaters. When a duckbill egg hatches in the T's nest, both the new baby and the T-Rex family must try very hard to get along. But the little dinosaur, nicknamed Drip by his new family, soon proves he's not such a drip after all―in fact, he's a real hero!

Dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages will cheer for Drip in this timeless story about little versus big, by the author of the beloved and bestselling picture book, The Gruffalo.

we love her books (yay) and we love dinosaurs (yay) so i thought for sure this one would be perfect. it sadly wasn’t. the herbivores are happy, loving dinos while the carnivores are hateful, mean ones. animals eat what they eat, they aren’t good or bad because of it but i brushed this off as they could look villainous to the dinos they eat, sure. they chant up with hunting, up with war which was just odd. i’m not sure what dinos have to do with war. for rhyming purposes she could have done more... i feel like that would fit better. then when drip makes it back to his real family, it could have ended nice there. instead his tyrannosaurus rex family came over via a fallen tree to eat them. as his sisters (he actually called them sisters) see their evil reflection, they get scared. so i thought she was going to end it on them not realizing how scary they were and becoming nice, which isn’t a great ending either because i mean they have to eat... but no, they all look at their reflections and get scared and when the dad does, he breaks the log and they fall into the water. my 6 year old looked at the book and back at me and said “but there were kids on there...” definitely the first and hopefully the last of her books to disappoint us all because we love her work! but this one was a flop.
This book is growing on us. First read through I wasn't a big fan but now I'm liking it far more. Not nearly as good as the Room on a Broom book though - that one is just very fun to read. But this book was found at the perfect time as my son is all about dinosaurs right now. Love the illustrations!
Reading this book (borrowed from the library) to my neighbor children made me laugh out loud. It was an instant sensation and every family wanted a copy to own. When my grandson got to be 4, I bought him a copy, too. It's a real delight to read and full of all the things that make children ask for a story over and over.
My Boys aged 3 - 5 love this book. Especially the younger dinosaur lover. Although the trex has 3 fingers, so we now have to read it as “allosaurus drip”
A wonderful book that you will enjoy reading and your audience will have fun along with you!
Loved the story. Many Julia Donaldson books in my little grandson's library.
Cute book my 3 year old loves it
Our house loves this book, so funny and cute.
