“Higgins turns classic picture-book scenarios upside down, then wrings them for contemporary laughs.” — The New York Times on Mother Bruce.
We Don’t Eat Our Classmates! (Disney-Hyperion) is a fresh take on first-day-of-school-jitters with Penelope Rex, a dinosaur with a taste for children.
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…
Sensitively broaching the subject of nervous new students with a lighthearted energy, We Don’t Eat Our Classmates! allows readers to explore school anxiety with a humorous core.
