Everyone has heard about dinosaurs like the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Stegosaurus but there are other dinosaurs that are nice yet don't get enough attention. Let's meet these awkward and interesting dinosaurs in The Awkward Dinosaurs by Kellen Roggenbuck. Whether it is the Mustachasaurus, who carries a large comb to keep his thick mustache and eyebrows clear of food, or the Hulatallula Rex, who has excellent rhythm and grace, or the Tallisaurus who loves the weather, these awkward and whimsical dinosaurs will bring a smile to the faces of young readers and give them the confidence to accept themselves for who they are, just like the dinosaurs in the story.

The author's creativity and imagination cross all boundaries and he comes up with some amazing dinosaur species with their own identity and individuality. He also makes them palpable to young readers with his colorful and lively illustrations. There are so many cute dinosaurs and delightful pictures to keep the reader captivated and the subtle message that runs through the book is conveyed perfectly in a funny and whimsical way. Children need books like this to make them creative, imaginative, and silly at times. It is a good book for tutors and parents to read out loud to kids, and the awkward dinosaurs will also bring a smile to the faces of the adults who read the book. The fun and humor in the way the author speaks about dinosaurs will make youngsters interested in learning more about them.
