    Great book for baseball buffs!

    Tobias is a regular kid with a dad who has razor sharp teeth and is the size of a school bus. He desperately wants his father to come be part of his school's Field Day baseball game. Very funny book, lots of hidden visual jokes (i.e. on the back cover the dad has ordered what look like 100 pepperoni pizzas) and a wonderful interplay between this artist and author. Debut book, this one is a homerun right out of the park!

    Highly recommended for father's day, birthdays,classrooms, baseball season. Big bold illustrations. Strong story line with sweet message about the enduring love between fathers and children.

    Perfect book for father's day and baseball season!!

    It's time for the Field Day baseball game but T-Dad is too busy to come to his son's event-- or is he? About a dad who is way way larger than life, with larger than life pictures by a brilliant new illustrator. Rosenberg and Myers have created a genuine new classic-- with baseball, dinosaurs, and fathers and sons all rolled into one.

    check it out for Father's Day!

    Great book for fathers to read aloud to kids this father's day-- a perfect blend of tender and funny. Bright vivid pictures by Matthew Myers, illustrator of CLINK. For kids with busy dads. Sweet without being mushy. Also nice for dinosaur fans and baseball enthusiasts. Homerun!

    Tremendous story and picture duo, this one hits a home run

    My son loves this new picture book. It's about dinosaurs, baseball, school field days, dads and how to stand up to the tough kids. Bright funny color pictures with a cartoony ferocity that delights and does not scare him. Tender ending that teaches kids all parents love their kids in their own way, even when they are as big as a school bus with teeth "as sharp as steak knives." Unlike so many picture books, the author and illustrator are perfectly matched. Hope for more from this pair-- is there a sequel coming? Tyrannosaurus Dad on Bring a Kid to Work Day? The Tyrannosaurus Dad all-meat grilling cookbook?

    totally cool big dad

    This dinosaur reminds me of my own dad-- larger than life, busy, ferocious, strong but loving. See the front cover I used to ride his shoulders while he mowed the lawn, too. Funny book, amazing pictures too.

    Delightful new funny heartfelt picture book

    My husband got this book for Father's Day this year, and we all love it. It's very very funny, thanks to a clever text and eye-popping art by Matthew Myers. My son appreciated the message that even when dads are busy and pre-occupied they still love and want to protect their kids. The message is very subtle, mostly it's just zany and hilarious and imaginative. The dinosaur looks like one of my uncles. But it has a lot of heart, which is all too rare in picture books these days. My son wants to share it with his classmates, and I think they will all love it!

    FUN BOOK

    This one is a lot of fun to read aloud. My twins both love dinosaurs and baseball so this was a slam-dunk for us. Love the super-bright pictures and the tongue in cheek tone. My favorite part is where the booing parents pretend to cough when Tyrannosaurus Dad calls the game on account of rain. Wish he were around for my kids' Little League games!
