Description
An upROARiously funny take on following your wildest dreams, from the bestselling creator of Dinosaur Comics

Being a regular old human is kind of a drag. That's why Sal is not going to be a teacher or doctor or lawyer when she grows up. She is going to grow up to be an awesome Tyrannosaurus Rex. Her brother thinks it's impossible, but Sal sure shows him! And in the beginning, being a T. Rex is AWESOME. But did you know that it's kind of hard to make friends when you are a super-giant, super-loud, super-stompy dinosaur? If only there were a way for Sal to be 100% awesome, 100% of the time...

Eisner Award-winning writer Ryan North makes his picture book debut with this bright, bold, and quirky story about finding—and taming—the beast within.
