A very long time ago, dinosaurs lived all over the world. They were various colours, shapes, and sizes, and spoke different languages.
One snowy winter, with his skillful use of words, Tapejara almost tricks a Tyrannosaurus to its death.
Luckily, the weakened Tyrannosaurus meets three friendly Homalocephales and they save his life, despite not understanding each other's languages.
The Tyrannosaurus and the three Homalocephales form a parent-child–like relationship. He even tries to teach them his language, which leads to a terrible misunderstanding with another dinosaur.
Miyanishi’s trademark bold lines and colours capture the sounds, landscape, and emotions that the Tyrannosaurus experiences in this sixth book of the Japanese series.
Addressing contemporary issues of sacrifice, friendship, and vulnerability through these prehistoric creatures, the book teaches readers that love can overcome barriers and differences.
The humanness of the dinosaurs illuminates the power and strength the “language of the heart” can have.
A fun, heartfelt story you’ll really love.
