Ghostopolis, Bad Island). He has an outrageously creative imagination and paralleled talent with his artwork. I recommended TenNapel's work to my son and he devoured the books mentioned above. When I saw Tommysaurus Rex at the Scholastic Book Fair, I knew I had to buy it for my boy. He was so kind to let me borrow it, but requested to have it back as soon as I was done. He just had to read it again!
Let me tell you a little about Tommysaurus Rex . . . Ely is your average young boy that loves his dog, Tommy. Unfortunately, he loses Tommy and he gets sent to stay with his grandparents on a farm in the hopes of helping him to deal with his loss. While out exploring one day, he happens to find a giant T-Rex and embarks on an adventure of a lifetime trying to train him to live among the people.
TenNapel has done it again. He provides a wonderfully creative story with a great message and all wrapped up in a beautiful piece of art. I recommend you read this one as well as share it with the younger ones in your life. It's 100% worth it! The best part is that we own this one. I just have to convince my son to let me borrow it again!
Have you had the pleasure of meeting Tommysaurus Rex? How about experiencing any of TenNapel's work?
