I Will Love You Forever

Tatsuya Miyanishi, trans. from the Japanese by Mariko Shii Gharbi. Museyon (IPG, dist.), $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-940842-17-2
Questions of nature versus nurture loom large in this fourth book in Miyanishi’s Tyrannosaurus series, which follows the existential struggles of a tyrannosaur named Heart, who was hatched and raised by a maiasaurus. After Heart runs into an adult tyrannosaurus while collecting berries (readers are led to believe he is Heart’s long-lost father) it leads to much anguish. “I could never be a Tyrannosaurus! Never!” wails Heart in a scene that’s a bit like Luke Skywalker learning that Darth Vader is his father. Miyanishi’s bold graphics are as saturated with color as the story is with emotion; an abrupt and somber ending offers no easy answers to Heart’s questions. Ages 5–7. (June)
