Meet Tiny -- the pint-sized, prehistoric hero! He may be very small, but he's got a very big heart! When Tiny the dinosaur hatches out of a great, big egg, no one can believe their eyes! he is so small! Tiny grows --a little -- and tries to make friends with the other young dinosaurs but they laugh and say that he isn't big enough to play their games. But what Tiny lacks in size, he more than makes up for in spirit!

In this readable but ultimately forgettable story, a diminutive lime-green dinosaur follows in the literary footsteps of many other small but mighty characters who aid someone larger or more powerful.
