This is a short and funny book, by Hugh Murphy, about a T-Rex Trying... to do various activities. I picked this up in the drawing section of the library. The book has a simple drawing on each page with a sentence explaining what the T-Rex is trying to do.

The book is a collection of the drawings from the Tumblr T-Rex Trying... which you should check out for some additional drawings.

Lots of sight gags with the T-Rex's short arms ensue. I was giggling the whole way through. The kids got some of the jokes and enjoyed it as well. There are 100 drawings in total which explore lots of problems a T-Rex would have.

The drawings are a little reminiscent of the Harold and the Purple Crayon with it's limited palette of 3 colours.

Check this one out for it's great drawings and funny gags.
