Who wouldn't love to attend a fancy tea party with a toothy, gigantic carnivore? From Molly Idle, the author of Flora and the Flamingo, we have Tea Rex, the story of a young girl named Cordelia who loves big flowery hats, fancy tiny sandwiches, and perfectly sweet tea cakes.
The juxtaposition of a proper and prim little girl and her proper and prim tea table with a t-rex crashing about and roaring loudly makes for a funny story. This one would make a great holiday gift. Molly Idle's stories have such great humor and tenderness, and her illustrations are always just perfect! Age recommendation: 3-6
