Samanthasaurus Rex is not your typical T. rex. She’d rather paint animals than chase them. She prefers sorting bones to gnawing on them. Bite and fight? Nope. Sam uses her words. Naturally, her parents and brother worry --- will she ever be a strong, fearsome leader like a true T. rex? But when disaster strikes, it is Samanthasaurus Rex who saves the day --- in her own unique way.
