[Welcome to my week of speed reviews]
Many years ago I studied a Children’s Literature paper at University, where we discussed the concept of didacticism at great length. I love a great anti-didactic tale and to me Rex is the epitome of anti-didacticism. Where I expected a lovely moral outcome, instead check this out:
“I hope I’m as terrifying as you when I grow up, Dad,” said Rex.
So so great. I’m doing such a speed review today, that’s all you’re getting. Okay, let me throw a few more words your way, dinosaurs, reluctant adoption, hilarity, brilliance. You’re welcome.
Check out Rex at Auckland Libraries.
Or buy Rex from Fishpond.
