Cookiesaurus Rex, a book sprinkled with humor!

T Rex's and cookies will never be the same for me! This creative story combines them both in an engaging story that takes the reader and the cookie decorator by surprise. Told from the point of view of a T-Rex cookie who is reacting to his cookie decorator, this story is sure to elicit laughs and discussion. The first person, all dialogue text is a unique metafiction format for picture books. The main character (t-rex dinosaur cookie) demands different decorations. His lack of control and his jealousy for the other cookies is hilariously shown when he is decorated like a baby and then acts like a baby: 

"No! No! No! No! I want sprinkles! I want gumdrops! I want chocolate chips!" 

The illustration on the next page gives him chocolate chips in a way that most kids will find hilarious! Sprinkled with word play and engaging and emotional illustrations, this story is beautifully crafted and fun to read aloud. 

I received a review copy of this book from Disney-Hyperion in exchange for an honest review.
