I was researching types of book reviews ( for a future publishing venture) and found my way to the Kirkus site and a review for this book. It achieved a "star" which is a high honor. I decided to order it from Amazon to see why it had such high accolades.
First impression... This book is so stinking cute and funny! I stopped reading it and sent the link to a friend before I was done ( and it's not a long book!). It's of nice quality and has a dust jacket. The pages seem to be matte which works well with the story.
The story follows Penelope a dinosaur who ends up in a class full of tasty kids. The conflict arises when she has to decide between eating them and making friends.
My initial impression was this would be great for the 5-8 crowd. My 3 year old picked this up instead of his new duck and goose beach book. I read it, and he started to act a little scared so, so I didn't point out some of the humorous illustrations and changed a few key points. As soon as I finished a Jurassic Park commercial came on the tv. I covered his eyes, but it was too late. Parent fail... Or so I thought. At bed time he started pretending to chomp on his father and went and got the book. It's now been read (24 hours later) several times as written. A new favorite. 😂
You really cant go wrong with this book. It's one of my favorates. Did I mention, its so stinkin' cute?
Penelope is a T-Rex starting school. She’s looking forward to making friends with her classmates, but that doesn’t go as planned because they taste delicious! It’s not until the class pet takes a liking to Penelope’s finger that she realizes being eaten is no fun.
Loved the diverse children represented in this book, and I think students will pick up on theme (treat others the way you want to be treated) easily. A must have for those who do #classroombookaday with students!
Don’t forget to remove the book jacket to see the hilarious book undies!
