Once there was a dinosaur called Pico T Rex.
He lived up in the clouds and he had a phobia of girl dinosaurs. His house was made of clay and covered in candy and cakes. His best friend was Johnny the footballing tiger.
Johnny and Pico T Rex were out walking and talking.
Johnny turned to Pico and he said, “I need to tell you something, bro.”
And then Johnny told him that he had a girlfriend and that he will be hanging out with her.
Johnny said, “You could hang out with us but you are afraid of girls.”
Pico thought about eating Johnny’s house as revenge.
But he decided that that would be mean and instead he knew he must overcome his fear of girls.
He asked Johnny how he would do this....
