T.Rex Time Machine by Jared Chapman


Time travel and Tyrannosaurs!!! What better combination for a comic style picture book can you get?

Mr 6 enjoyed this book “I love the smooth pages and colourful pictures” he says!! He loved the sound effects “POP” “DING” and thought it was hilarious that T.rex’s can have tantrums too! I did have to explain the reference to King Tut at the end, but he still read it over and over before we had to return it to the library.

The double page spread where the egg-shaped time machine hurtles across space in a wave of rainbow dust is wonderful. Just like a comic book, there are panelled images and speech bubbles.  The text is clear and simply perfect for beginner readers. Spikey speech bubbles work well to create an awesome effect.

This is a really fun story which sees the Tyrannosaurs in 2018 and they happily realise that food comes to them! As they are taking in the surroundings of ‘food overload’ they run into police and soon find themselves hurtling across space again.
