My young daughters and I love to read together. It is something we try to do at least once or twice a day. We are always looking for new books to add to our library, so we were thrilled to get an advance copy of Cookiesaurus Rex! This book had us all giggling uncontrollably – even my husband. If you are looking for a book that will make your belly sore from laughing so hard, this is it. Cookiesaurus Rex will bring families together with all of its fun!
About Cookiesauraus Rex
A dinosaur-shaped cookie can’t get any respect as he’s being decorated in COOKIESAURUS REX. This laugh-out-loud picture book is told from the point of view of a sassy treat. With short text and bold artwork, COOKIESAURUS REX is sure to charm readers young and old. As soon as Cookiesaurus Rex comes out of the oven, he declares that he is King of All Cookies. He should be frosted before all of the standard-shaped cookies, in a nice bright green. But the other cookies are getting sprinkles, or shiny stars, or even gumdrops…
Wait one stinkin’ stompin’ minute! Cookiesaurus wants a do-over. The problem is, he might not end up with the kind of “do” he wants. Readers will love the funny back-and-forth between this cheeky cookie and the hand that frosts him. See who gets his licks in at the end! With a quirky, sassy cookie as a protagonist, and a story sweeter than the icing in the illustrations, readers will fall in love with COOKIESAURUS REX.
