I'm a huge Julia Donaldson fan, a British author who is the mistress of rhyme and humor in children's picture books. And she pulls it off again Tyrannosaurus Drip, a fun rhyming romp about a kind of cuckoos egg and an ongoing battle between a peaceful vegetarian family of Duckbill Dinosaurs and a nasty aggro family of T-Rex's.
I've now also become a huge fan of the illustrator David Roberts whose illustrations combine a cartoon, fine art, and Edward Gorey feel all in one. I'm hoping to interview him for the upcoming Craft and Business of Illustrating Children's Picture Books, which promises to be quite exceptional and unlike anything else out there :)
So without further ado - come learn about Tyranasaurus Drip. And if you like it, please take a second and click the like button below it.
