Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poor T-Rex. It’s hard to be the Lizard King when you can’t even change a light bulb.

Drawn from Hugh Murphy’s wildly popular Tumblr feed of the same name, T-Rex Trying depicts the stubby-armed tyrant in a range of hilarious — yet pathos-inducing — activities that we humans take for granted. Murphy’s 100 drawings include:

T-Rex Trying to Paint His House

T-Rex Trying to Use a Drive-Through ATM

T-Rex Trying to Apply Sunscreen

T-Rex Trying to Break Into a Vending Machine

T-Rex Trying to Ask for a New Roll of Toilet Paper from the Next Stall

Looks like the ancient beast isn’t so tough after all.
