TIM, aka Tyrannosaurus: Improved Model, is the product of a top-secret government military experiment, and he couldn't be more loveable. Sure, he's an enormous monster to most, but at heart he's just a big, awkward, 13-year-old who realizes he could be all that stands between the earth and total destruction. (Take that, Godzilla.)
Now TIM must form an unlikely alliance with 15-year-olds Chris and Anna in order to save humanity from the greatest threat it has ever known: Anna's father, the brilliant and demented Professor Mallahide, and his growing tide of vicious, all-consuming nanobots.
Will TIM prevail and save the British Isles and the world from evil? We'll all have to hold hands, read, and believe - in TIM, Defender of the Earth!

I am a child of the 50's, love kids, animals, plants. I adopted a Sulphur mustang mare (desendant of the warhorses of the Conquistadors).
I was plainly disappointed in this book. I would have thought it was great if it were written by one of my fifth graders. The writing was so simplistic and juvenile that I couldn't sink into the story.
