"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!"

Simple graphics in vibrantly bold colors, life lessons seamlessly woven into kiddie-friendly adventures, clever humor and easy empathy accessible to all ages, all ensure Tatsuya Miyanishi’s stories should cross cultures and borders with ease.

Beneath this deceptively simple tale of ancient
reptilian family life lies a story of surprising
complexity and contemporary relevance.
