Rex is a tiny tadpole who can't wait to grow up and be big like everybody else. Unfortunately for Rex, he lives in a prehistoric swamp...and everybody else is a gigantic dinosaur.With a little time - and a lot of patience - Rex does grow, gaining arms and legs and, most importantly, a personality big enough to take on even the mightiest of his neighbours.

Review quote

"The swampy greens and hard edges of the digitally colored scratchboard artwork suit the prehistoric period and rough scales of the dinosaurs perfectly, while the varying scale of the illustrations will keep readers on their toes-Cyrus is a master of the extreme close-up. Readers will thrill to the action and suspense while teachers will appreciate the subtle lesson on the life cycle of frogs." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review, May 1, 2008 "The rhyming text is image-rich, informational, and fun to read aloud. . . . Cyrus''s oversize artwork conveys information spectacularly, beginning with a dramatic wrap-around cover and continuing with interesting perspectives of dinosaurs and the prehistoric environment. Created in scratchboard and then colored digitally, the illustrations are luminous and striking. . . . This is an exciting blend of science and literature that children will appreciate." --School Library Journal, starred review, June 2008
