A delightful book about a young dinosaur enjoying his day. What does he do to enjoy it? After something happens, he decides that he needs to play a different. Why? Is it a better way?

The picture book story is written for young children. It's a great story that can give parents and little children a chance to talk about the little "Dex's behavior."

Dex is an adorable blue T-Rex who is a very typical boy, even if he is a dinosaur. He plows through the grass tearing up everything he can find just for fun.In this delightful and very colorful story told in rhyme we see the devastation Dex is causing to the world around him, with nary a care.

He changes his attitude ...more

I don't usually read a lot of picture books, but when I saw 'Dex T-Rex: The Mischievous Little Dinosaur' and that it was being published by Stan Lee's Kids Universe, I just couldn't resist. The bright cover and great dino design by Katya Bowser drew me right in.

Dex is indeed a mischievous T-Rex. He wanders around destroying things for fun. He hasn't a care in the world leaving destruction in his wake, until, one day, his destruction has a consequence. Will Dex change his ways? Can he repair the

The adorable (although quite naughty) little T-Rex does manage to capture your heart. He loves to play, act ferocious and is a drama-king indeed. His escapades, although fun to him, turn out to be quite destructive to the world around him. He breaks, smashes, kicks and grabs at his environment as he is gaming but his idea of fun leaves a path of chaos and devastation behind him.

Then little T-Rex, through a careless incident involving a poor innocent caterpillar, has an epiphany that makes him c

Dex T-Rex: The Mischievous Little Dinosaur
Written by Katya Bowser

Dex is a dinosaur but not just any dinosaur. He's a blue T-Rex who is a bit hyperactive.His excessive energy and mischievousness gets into too much trouble. He is on a destructive path destroying every thing in his path. When Dex's behavior causes him to injure a poor little caterpillar. This causes Dex to feel horrible and very sorry. Dex tries to fix his mistakes including his friendship with the little cater
Dex, T-Rex is mischievously enjoying life to its fullest without a thought or care to how his actions affect the things and creatures around him until he injures a little caterpillar. Filled with remorse, Dex begins to undo all the foolish things he has done attempting to make amends. He has learned an important life lesson-never harm anything.

Dex, T-Rex is a rhyming picture book that preschoolers will enjoy and hopefully learn a good lesson from Dex.

This book was really cute. Carmine and I read this on the iPad and he enjoyed "turning" the pages. It was our first kid e-book and I hope it's not the last. We loved watching dex fix his mistakes they were so clever fix it's.
It gets a star for being associated with Stan Lee, but I found this book preachy, so for me, it's only 2 stars.
