Welcome to the Tribe!
From the Series Tib & Tumtum
All of the grownups in Tib’s prehistoric tribe know that the dinosaurs disappeared ages ago. So of course they don’t believe that Tib has made friends with one. But Tumtum the dinosaur is very clever at hiding from grownups. When the friendly red dino saves the tribe’s kids from a pack of hungry wolves while the startled adults look on, the shaman decides that perhaps it’s time to welcome a dinosaur into the tribe.

“Bannister’s anime-influenced style makes for some adorable characters with vivid colors and cartoony scenery. The book is full of charm and sets the groundwork for future adventures in what will hopefully be a long-running series.” —School Library Journal
“A boy bullied on account of his birthmark befriends a vivacious vermillion dinosaur in this delightfully whimsical tale of friendship….Fun, imaginative and inventive—dino-mite!” —Kirkus Reviews
