Some tea parties are for grown-ups.
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!

Review quote

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

About Molly Idle

Molly Idle takes her tea with milk (no sugar) and will always accept the offer of a slice of chocolate cake to go with it. Just about any time but tea time, she can be found at her desk pouring over stacks of drawings, or running amok after her two very special boys. She and her family live in Tempe, Arizona.
