Dinosaurs (TV series) - Wikipedia
Part reality, part dream, this story is quiet and lovely and is full of stunning illustrations. I love sharing my books with kids, adults and pets alike. If you're looking for the perfect read aloud by a local author and illustrator, Ta- Da! What makes a good story? One little girl thinks it's a princess with magic powers that can ta-da! Her friend thinks it's dun dun duh! But as their stories combine, these two young storytellers soon learn that a good story needs both destruction and triumph, conflict and resolution. Expect to hear a lot of " Duh Duh Duh!
When I'm not reading children's books aloud to myself, I'm travelling with my husband, who's a bookseller.
New Kids' and YA Books: Week of August 28, 2018
Largely because of his innocence, he also can show himself to be very gullible, which is especially evident in the Small Fry short, where he was the only one of the toys to believe that Buzz Lightyear had "shrunk" from contact with the balls in the ball pit, when the rest of the toys quickly realized the "Buzz" that was brought home was an imposter due to his obvious short stature.
Despite his constant fear of rejection, he is a valued member of the gang, and considered to be the most "ferocious" dinosaur toy a kid could ask for in the eyes of both Andy and Bonnie. In the original film, Rex is first seen making a failed attempt to scare Woody. He then reveals himself to be insecure about his roar, fearing that he is merely coming off as annoying rather than scary.
At the time, Andy and his family are preparing to move to a new home, so the toys prepare by picking a moving partner to stick with during the transition. Rex is paired with Mr. Potato Head, much to the latter's annoyance. On the day of Andy's birthday, Rex fears that Andy will get a newer, better dinosaur toy and replace him, though this is not the case as Andy instead receives a Buzz Lightyear figure, to whom Rex immediately takes a shine to like the other toys.
Throughout the following days, Rex and Buzz form a friendship. Buzz, at one point, helps Rex master his roar, which he uses to blow the pieces off of Mr. Potato Head.
When Woody's jealousy gets the better of him, causing Buzz to fall out the window, Rex is reluctant to place the blame on Woody as he does not like confrontation. When Woody is thrown out of the group for his apparent selfishness, Rex is remorseful but overall in agreement with the rest of the toys. His tune changes, however, when both Woody and Buzz appear to be working together to reunite with Andy, leaving Rex feeling guilty. At the end of the film, Christmas has arrived and the toys anxiously await to see what new toys Andy has gotten.

Rex, who has garnered some confidence over the course of the film, openly hopes that Andy gets a leaf-eater dinosaur, so that he may play the dominant predator. Unfortunately, he is unable to beat the game, mostly due to his small arms preventing him from pressing certain buttons at the same time, resulting in numerous disappointments.
He is then seen channel-hopping in an attempt to find Al's Toy Barn commercial, but Hamm eventually takes over, doing it far more rapidly. Buzz establishes a rescue mission, with Rex—who believes his experience with video games have prepared him for the adventure— being one of the recruited toys. At Al's toy store, Rex reads a "Buzz Lightyear" video game strategy guide and finally discovers how to defeat Zurg. He later attracts Buzz 2 unaware he was not Andy's Buzz with his claim of knowing how to defeat Zurg. In Al's office, Rex tells Buzz 2 about a secret entrance from the game which Buzz uses to find the vents later.
His tail sticking out of Al's bag also lets the real Buzz know where the others are. The toys later travel to Al's apartment, where Buzz 2 and the toys use Rex's head as a battering ram to break in. Unfortunately, they learn that Woody wants to stay with Al and his "Roundup gang", as a means of self-preservation.

Woody's mind eventually changes, however, but he is taken by Al before he can be reunited with Rex and the others. Rex, Buzz and the other toys try to follow Al using the elevator, but they are confronted by Zurg in pursuit of Buzz. As a battle ensues, a fearful Rex cannot bear to look, and turns around in fear, inadvertently knocking Zurg off the elevator shaft and accomplishing his goal of defeating the evil emperor.
At the end of the film when Hamm is playing the video game, he asks Rex for help, but Rex proudly replies, "I don't need to play; I've lived it! One of the bloopers shows the scene where the toys use him as a battering ram, only for them to crash and Rex to hurt his head when banged against the locked grate which did not even budge.
Rex returns in the third film, as he eagerly awaits the opportunity to finally get played with by children again. Years later, Andy is 17 years old, and Rex, like the other toys, wishes so much to be played with that he even gets excited when Andy picks him up.
The toys are accidentally almost thrown away by Andy's mom, thinking that they are trash.

Rex was responsible for saving the toys' lives with his pointy tail to split open the trash bag. With them believing that they are just junk to Andy now, they decide to sneak into a box bound for Sunnyside Daycare. Early on, I said that not all of the ideas you have so carefully thought up during PiBoIdMo are picture book ideas.
That is reality. Some of those ideas will turn out to be chapter books, or middle grades, no matter how hard we push them to be something else. Just like some of our children will become kidlit authors, no matter how hard we push them to be doctors. Some of those ideas will turn out to flounder and struggle, will find it difficult to ever realize their full potential.
Because the reality is that some of the ideas you have are picture book ideas. They need you to cultivate and develop them, but with your help, they will grow to be wonderful picture books. The key here is to let your characters be who they are. Let your stories be what they are. If they grow into something different than you thought, follow them on their path instead of forcing them onto your own. The end result will be truer, will have more heart, and will be better written. In case you missed it, here is some more PiBoIdMo advice from Kami and from me from earlier this month.
By this I mean it is my job, my primary source of income therefore, work but also that it is just plain HARD. There is nothing so depressing as trying to come up with something new and fresh to write about—and coming up with nothing. But here are some tricks I use to muddle through those times when I have nothing to write about.
I truly believe that the most important aspect of a picture book, what drives its popularity the most, is a charismatic main character. The premise, the setting, the cutesy word play and rhyme—all of these are secondary to character. So if you need to brainstorm only one thing, work on that viable character list. The trick to creating a truly charismatic main character is to blend flaws with flair. Give your main character some faults, some defects—he will be infinitely more interesting.
There are so many examples of authors who take an old idea and make it into something modern and fresh. The entire genre of fractured fairy tales is built on the premise that recognizable is always a benefit for marketing, but recognizable AND fresh is money in the bank. But if you can take inspiration from something your audience will recognize and then take it to a brand new place, where is the downside?

- The Beehive Cluster?
- Adieu, Anh I/31!
- Get A Copy;
- More in News.
- The Asian Diet.
- Le masochisme social (Logiques sociales) (French Edition).
And I mean this as way to eliminate bad ideas. Trust me, this is a bad idea. Because as cute as their latest antics are to you, they very rarely make for good picture books. Save yourself. Well, do a writing exercise at least. But the exercise will show you that you are not only able to create a new story but one that is better than something that was actually published which means there is hope for you yet and, again, you never know where that road will lead.
Sorry, guys, sometimes the ideas are not going to come. No matter how much you force it. When you are really and truly stuck, stop trying so hard. Instead, work on revising older manuscripts—maybe you can whip one of those into shape. Or perhaps the something old that you will turn into something new will come from your own pile of older ideas.

This seemed like the perfect solution as it allowed me a good deal of creative license. Illustrator gulps. Illustrator whines. Illustrator wrecks! Illustrator practices and practices drawing dinosaurs!
