In the tradition of Old Yeller comes the heartwarming friendship between a boy and his Tyrannosaurus Rex

When Ely's beloved dog, Tommy, is hit by a car, he goes to his grandpa's house for the summer to get his mind off things. While exploring a nearby cave one day he discovers a full-grown but friendly Tyrannosaurus Rex. As the news of the dinosaur grows around town, so does the friendship between Ely and his Jurassic pet. But Randy, the mean kid down the street, decides he's going to make life miserable for Ely and his dinosaur - to devastating effect.

Tommysaurus Rex was nominated for two Eisner awards in 2005:

Praise for Tommysaurus Rex

"[TenNapel] has mastered a cartoonish style that preserves a sense of grit while lending some emotional weight to match the story." -Booklist

"It's a premise worthy of a loony Saturday morning cartoon . . . but underlying the fun is a potent and affecting story about facing death and growing up." -Publishers Weekly

"His trademark inventiveness and depth are still present, making this an excellent offering for any dog lover or for anyone looking for a tale of friendship." -Kirkus
