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. 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!

A delicious laugh out loud! Who knew a little cookie could have such a big attitude. Though I guess if I was a dinosaur cookie and being decorated not the way I wanted, I would have done the same thing. Trust me, you don't want to mess with Cookiesaurus Rex. This tough little cookie isn't afraid to decorate himself if he has to. Oh does he. This self proclaimed King of the Cookies should be decorated the only way a dinosaur cookie king should be... with all the cookie decorations. 

This is brilliantly written, laugh out for readers of all ages! I love it when picture books have humor for the whole family. You know what would be perfect with this story, a plate of cookies! Mixed in with the nonstop laughs, this book will definitely make you look at cookie decorating in a whole new way. Now I want to go make dinosaur cookies..... 

I highly recommend picking up this book! It just may end up on my 2017 favorites list. Not only is the story hilarious, the illustrations are great. This is definitely a book to add to your holiday gift giving lists this year. 
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
