Book Review


Everyone in the tribe knows that dinosaurs died out long ago. However, it seems no one told Tumtum, Tib’s ‘imaginary’ dinosaur friend. Although Tib is a human child and Tumtum is a sharp-toothed dinosaur, the two have a special friendship that starts because they both have a red spot around one eye. Between adventures with Tumtum, Tib tries to convince other people from his tribe that Tumtum is a real dinosaur. In the end Tumtum is welcomed to the tribe after he saves Tib and the other children from a pack of wolves.
