In this delightful picture book written and illustrated by Robert Neubecker, Ruth Ann, a girl who loves museums and knows a lot about dinosaurs, meets Linus, a Tyrannosaurus Rex who defies her expectations. (Though it doesn’t come up in the book, on his blog Neubecker said Linus is “a Unitarian Universalist, so he’s open minded.”)
Neubecker is an award-winning illustrator and children’s book author whose work regularly appears in UU World, as well as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and Slate.
