This book is designed for parents to read to their children or better yet for children to read to their parents. The story is sweet, short and has many important lessons.
The main character is Tib, a super cute and smart little boy whose best friend is a red DINOSAUR (arrrr) named Tumtum. The other children in the village are very mean to Tib because he has a big red birthmark on his face and he's besties with a dinosaur, but Tib is better than that and doesn't let the haters get him down.
In this book Tib sets out to show his village that people (or dinosaurs) shouldn't be judged by their appearance.
Tib has such a great sense of humor and a bit of a wicked streak in him, not to mention he is about as honest as they come ("Aw, stop crying! That was a pretty bad idea, anyway."), little man can be brutal, LOL (yes, I was LOL'ing as I read).
In this book, the village also sets out to learn about schools, because all children need to go to school and be taught by grown ups.
The story is sweet it's creative and it is hilarious.
Rating 4.5 out of 5
