Tadpole Rex by Kurt Cyrus

Tadpole Rex
40 pages; Harcourt
In the time of the dinosaurs, "Tadpole Rex" emerges from the goop. The creature grows into a frog, whose ancestors outlived all the dinosaurs "and somewhere inside, deep in their core, they all have an inner tyrannosaur." Impressive scratchboard illustrations and clever rhymes bring this mighty prehistoric tale to life.
