About the book...
While out one day a female Maiasaura stumbles upon a random egg in the forest, takes pity on it, scoops it up and takes it home. She gently lays it beside her own egg and waits for them both to hatch. She is surprised to find out that when it finally hatches a baby Tyrannosaurs is inside. Her mother's heart reaches out to the little abandoned one and she makes a decision to keep him and raise him as her very own. She names her baby "Light" and the adoptee "Heart".
One day while out gathering berries for his family Heart encounters a mean, vicious Tyrannosaurs and denounces his own birthright when he discovers exactly who that barbaric, cruel tyrant is. He remains faithful to his loving surrogate mother and sibling.
"I Will Love You Forever" is heartbreaking and heartwarming as well. The author himself sums it up perfectly...
"The theme of the Tyrannosaurus series is love. There aren't as many important things for us as to more often say such beautiful words as 'I love you.' The love I write about is something very natural. Here, it's all about showing that love is far more important than power. I hope you agree!"
The illustrations draw you into the narrative and are bursting with bright vibrant colours. I highly recommend this book and the whole series.
