Summary

A brilliantly funny story all about celebrating difference - perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime or any time at all!

Everyone knows that tyrannosauruses are big and scary, so when a placid duckbill dinosaur's egg ends up in the wrong nest, confusion is sure to ensue! When the baby dinosaur hatches out, he's so out of place that his grisly big sisters call him Tyrannosaurus Drip. Poor little Drip: all he wants is a quiet life munching on water weed....

Tyrannosaurus Drip is a fantastic rhyming adventure story from the stellar picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and David Roberts. This audio edition is read by Imelda Staunton and features a read-along track and a fun song! This roar-tastic book all about celebrating difference is sure to become a firm favourite with young dinosaur fans.

Great story and narration!

“It’s nice. It makes you learn a lesson to not go against people. Don’t run away from your family. This book is so good because it shows you the moral. Be kind to others!” -7 year old son We love this book!
