I won't give away anymore of this d ...more
Cute illustrations, funny lines, and adorable moments in a classroom - what's not to like.
One of the few children's books that made me laugh out loud. Nicely done! '
SOOOOOOOOOO cute! Love the art, love the message, love the story, love the author bio! Ugh! It really can't get much cuter than this! xoxo
This book is hilarious! Seriously! What else can you do when you are a T- Rex and your classmates are children. Oh, my heavens! I can’t stop laughing about this children’s book. I love it when Penelope Rex arrives home from school and her father questions her about her day and then comments, “You see, Penelope, children are the same as us on the inside, Just tastier.”
Penelope is nervous to start school but with her 300 tuna fish sandwiches and her pony backpack (because she loves to eat ponies) ...more
