It's career day at school and Rawr teaches his classmates about how to be a superhero. Superheroes are strong! Superheroes are fast! After school he rescues a kitten and helps with a broken fire hydrant, but he's glad when he gets home and can just be a dinosaur again. Being a superhero is a lot of work!
A simplistic first person dialogue is paired with simple cartoon illustrations in this children's book about a dinosaur superhero. While this book will be enjoyed by very young kids who love dinosaurs and/or superheroes, there isn't much in this book that is clever, funny, creative or teaches anything to the reader. On the whole, this book was underwhelming.
