Fab book for T Rex lovers

Love this book! Great for reading aloud, with lots of scope for funny voices and sounds.

Cute, funny story about a fluffy little chicken getting the better of a big, scary T-Rex; could also be described as a tall tale explaining our current shortage of T-Rexes.

Tyrannosaurus Rex stomps through the forest, shouting that he wants his breakfast. However, Edna is not one to "chicken" out. Armed with her mighty beak, pointy claws and flapping wings Edna takes on the prehistoric bully. A laugh-out-loud hilarious "David & Goliath"-esque tale.

Cute book.

A wonderfully cute story about a chicken who stands up to a bulling Tyrannosaurus Rex.
While all the other dinosaurs run and hide from the T-Rex, Edna refuses to be imitated. In fact, when T-Rex begins yelling about all the reasons she should be frightened, she answers back with reasons he should fear her! Just when you think this spunky little chicken is done for-T-Rex gobbles her up in one bite-she fights back! Using all the tools of her arsenal she fights back, and ends up chasing T-Rex out of the forest.

Super cute, with bright illustrations for little ones to focus on, and text that fits within the illustrations to become part of the artwork. The actual words are great for reading aloud, with some words modified for when T-Rex can't speak normally.
