Few dinosaurs could run faster than a Tyrannosourus rex or escape its keen eyesight. What exactly did Tyrannosourus rex hunt? How did it stalk its prey? Read and find out all about one of the deadliest carnivores of the prehistoric world.

Lucia Washburn's first book for young readers was Look to the North by Jean Craighead George. She lives in Petaluma, CA.From School Library Journal:
Gr 3-4-T. rex would probably win any dinosaur popularity contest claws down, and this readable introduction to the species will only add members to its fan club. Realistic, highly colorful illustrations form a background for the informative text containing up-to-date information on this fearsome predator (and snippets on some of its kin). While not as dramatic in appearance as, say, William Lindsay's Tyrannosaurus (DK, 1993; o.p.) or as challenging as John Horner's authoritative Digging up Tyrannosaurus Rex (Crown, 1995), this title will be welcomed by younger dinophiles. Even if you own the above, or Elaine Landau's more comparable Tyrannosaurus Rex (Children's, 1999), you should still make room on your shelves for this attractive entrant to a solid series.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
