About the Book
Have you ever felt like you were different.... like you don't belong? Meet Willy Everby, a little T-Rex who really is different than all the other Rexs. Since the day he was born, Willy just wants to make all the other dinosaurs his friends.... instead of his lunch! Everyday, Willy tries to do what he feels is right, instead of what all the other Rexs are doing. As all the Rexs pressure and tease him, the thing he hears most is, "That Willy Everby! Will he ever be like us? "
Then one day, everything changes. Find out how Willy takes what the other Rexs think is the end of the world and instead uses it to make a new one .... all with a little help from his friends.
Written and illustrated from the perspective of an eight year old, Willy Everby is both touching and insightful as it deals with one of lifes most common, and very often, painful struggles.
