Publisher's Summary

Tim, Defender of the Earth, is a rock'em, sockâ¿¿em thriller filled with smoke, spectacle, and big-time adventure. Big Ben will fall! Westminster Abbey will crumble! London will never be the same!

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!

not too good

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.
