This is an utterly original picture book about a familiar classroom practice, which highlights the fantastic imaginations of young children. Rex is a chameleon and a popular class pet. Every day someone gets to take Rex home, along with a book in which to write all the things Rex did on his visit. If a child can't write, they can draw a picture and as you might expect, the pictures are exaggerated and very funny. Although Rex is small, he seems to have dinosaur-sized adventures!
