Author Tatsuya Miyanishi says, “The theme of the Tyrannosaurus series is love. The love I write about is something very natural. It’s all about showing that love is far more important that power. I hope you agree!”
You Look Yummy! (ISBN 978-1-940842-06-6) highlights the importance of family and the love between father and son by showing that bonds can grow just as strong even in a case of mistaken identity as they do between actual relations—possibly even stronger.
You Are My Best Friend (ISBN 978-1-940842-10-3) is a heartwarming story about friendship. This book features a transformation of the dinosaur from a violent and selfish creature to a kind and caring one through the act of making a friend.
I Want That Love (ISBN 978-1-940842-14-1) tells the story of how a violent strong guy comes to realize the power of love. Miyanishi sends a great message for kids that violence and strength are not the answer.
I Will Love You Forever (ISBN 978-1-940842-17-2) is about unconditional love between mother and son.
