Product description


“Not only is this a coming-of-age girl-power adventure, the story is peppered with puns and scientific tidbits that will spark early conversations about science. Bright, captivating illustrations are reminiscent of retro cartoons, adding to the delight of this clever tale.” (School Library Journal)

“Modeling a curious tyrannosaurus with creative ideas, Mandell’s cute and clever main character and narrative exudes strong individualism and high self-esteem. Kaufman’s soft-toned, playful prehistoric scenes bring Mandell’s narrative to life in this fun and gently educational read.” (Booklist)

From the Back Cover

Samanthasaurus Rex is not your typical T. rex.

She’d rather paint animals than chase them.
She prefers sorting bones to gnawing on them.
Bite and fight?
Nope. Sam uses her words.

Naturally, her parents and brother worry—will she ever be a strong, fearsome leader like a true T. rex? But when disaster strikes, it is Samanthasaurus Rex who saves the day—in her own unique way.

This funny, reassuring story is perfect for any child (every child) who marches to the beat of a different drummer.
