Some are for girls.
But this tea party is for a very special guest.
And it is important to follow some rules . . .
like providing comfortable chairs,
and good conversation,
and yummy food.
But sometimes that is not enough for special guests,
especially when their manners are more Cretaceous than gracious . . .
Introducing Tea Rex, a guest that just about any child would love to have to tea.
Praise for Tea Rex by Molly Idle:
"Sure to be enjoyed by tea-party enthusiasts, and even dino fans with no use for a teapot will find themselves drawn to this clever tale of a not-entirely-civilized beast of the past." —Kirkus
“…Idle has a gift for comic composition...” —Publishers Weekly
"The tension between the text and illustrations provides much to amuse the youngest tea-party hosts." —School Library Journal
"A fine example of how words and pictures can lock horns to charming effect." —Booklist
