“Higgins is back with a pitch-perfect tale of first-day jitters and unexpected empathy. Penelope, a pink-overall-clad T-rex, is exceptionally nervous about her first day of school. She’s so nervous that, after learning her classmates are all children, she eats them. Delicious! But Mrs. Noodleman is not amused. It isn’t until someone tries to make Penelope into a snack that she begins to understand just how her classmates feel. Penelope’s growing awareness of her classmates’ feelings is both adorable and relatable. Higgins’ charming illustrations and use of humor make Penelope’s story ideal for younger readers, especially as they transition into new experiences and social situations.”
— Sara Grochowski, McLean & Eakin Booksellers, Petoskey, MI

Description


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.
