By Tatsuya Miyanishi
Convinced that strength is best, a Tyrannosaurus stalks through his prehistoric world, terrorizing the smaller animals. But even the strongest dinosaurs get old; one day, weak and wounded, the Tyrannosaurus meets a baby Triceratops who, along with his little friends, shows kindness like the Tyrannosaurus has never experienced before. Instead of feasting on the little Triceratops, the Tyrannosaurus comes to understand that love is more powerful than violence. He does something heroic and truly powerful, and in the process, shows us all that what is really precious and important isn’t strength; it’s love!.
I Want That Love ($16.99/CAN $19.99, 40 pages, ISBN 978-1-940842-14-1) tells the story of how a violent strong guy comes to realize the power of love. It is the third book in Tatsuya Miyanishi’s Tyrannosaurus series of 13 titles that have sold more than 3 million copies in Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan and France, which explores friendship and love, caring and connection, and delivers lots of surprises in a bold, brightly depicted world of dinosaurs.
“The theme of the Tyrannosaurus series is love. There aren’t as many important things for us as to more often say such beautiful words as ‘I love you.’ The love I write about is something very natural. Here, it’s all about showing that love is far more important that power. I hope you agree!” m>—Tatsuya Miyanishi
