A dinosaur-shaped cookie can’t get any respect as he’s being decorated in COOKIESAURUS REX (On Sale September 26, 2017) by Amy Fellner Dominy and Nate Evans, illustrated by AG Ford. 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.

This book is as much for adults as it is for children. Parents will actually enjoy reading this one out loud since there are so many funny things that happen when a T Rex shaped cookie comes to life and is decorated in different ways. From a clown to a king, the Cookiesaurus is a cookie to be reckoned with. This is also a good beginner book since there are different words that appear in normal children’s books.
