By Tatsuya Miyanishi
A mother Maiasaura finds an egg in the forest and takes care of it as if it were her own. When it hatches and out pops a Tyrannosaurus, the vegetarian mother is alarmed, but she decides to raise him anyway. One fateful day the baby, now older, meets a Tyrannosaurus and comes to know who and what he really is.
A story about a mother’s unconditional love, I Will Love You Forever ($16.99/CAN $22.99, 40 pages, ISBN 978-1-940842-17-2) is the fourth book in Tatsuya Miyanishi’s Tyrannosaurus series, which explores friendship and love, caring and connection, and delivers surprises, humor, and tears 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!” —Tatsuya Miyanishi
