So my 8 year old likes to be read to but has not really found a book that he wants to read over and over. He will read when I hand him a book and there are several that he likes but he does not often just seek a book out. So when this book came across my desk I knew I had to hand it to him (in the form of my laptop). He LOVED IT! "Tommysaurus Rex" by Doug Tennapel is great! It is written in comic book format and draws you in right from the beginning. The story is about a boy who loses his dog Tommy. Right after losing his best friend, he goes to spend the summer on his Grandpa's farm. There he finds a bully and a T-rex whom he quickly names Tommy. All kinds of adventure ensues and there are lots of lessons to be learned throughout the story. Calvin has read the book over and over. And he still laughs every time. I am really recommending this book to everyone. Especially if you have a boy who just can't seem to find a book that they can't put down.
I received this title through Netgalley free of charge in exchange for my review.
