Tib finds a smallish red dinosaur but no one in his village believes him. All the grown-ups say dinosaurs disappeared a long time ago and all the kids just like to tease Tib about the birthmark on his face. Tib makes friends with Tumtum anyhow all the while trying to get others to see him. When the village is threatened by an unknown yet vicious predator, the hunters think maybe Tib did see a dinosaur and off they go to hunt him down. Tib, of course, must save his friend and the result of the hunt might surprise you a little. This is a fun little graphic novel for kids (1st-3rd graders will probably appreciate it the most).
