Penelope the dinosaur starts school, but it’s hard to make friends when her classmates are so delicious!
It’s the first day of school for Penelope Rex, and she can’t wait to meet her classmates. But it’s hard to make human friends when they’re so darn delicious! That is, until Penelope gets a taste of her own medicine and finds she may not be at the top of the food chain after all. . . . Readers will gobble up this hilarious new story from award-winning author-illustrator Ryan T. Higgins.
The perfect book for back to school! Penelope Rex is the cutest T-Rex ever, except she keeps eating her classmates. No, this book isn’t bloody, she just basically holds them in her mouth and then spits them out when she gets a scolding.
It teaches how to make friends at school (like not eating your friends would help) and getting along with others. The illustrations are color and fun, almost like comic book illustrations and my son loved it. My daughter on the other hand, she’s 2, thought Penelope was cute but I think she was a bit scared of her. By the time I said, The End, she made a motion to bite her plushy doll. 😂 So maybe it’s a book too old for her but Kindergarten and up would love this book.
I give it a 4 cones rating!
