Cookiesaurus Christmas

Amy Fellner Dominy and Nate Evans, illus. by A.G. Ford. Disney-Hyperion, $16.99 (40p) ISBN 978-148476745-0

In his second adventure, Cookiesaurus Rex, the self-proclaimed “King of All Cookies,” is iced up to look like Santa and believes he deserves a spot on the plate of the “Big Guy.” Ford’s comical art shows Cookiesaurus Rex peering over a table edge and pleading with the cookie maker (readers see only the figure’s hand, holding a spatula). “What’s so special about Star? Is it because she twinkles? Because I can tinkle too... I mean twinkle!” After the dino removes the competition, Cookiesaurus makes it to the plate, and then makes amends before finding a front and center spot on his new home. Readers are sure to relish this cookie’s attention-seeking antics and unwavering confidence. Ages 3–5. [em](Sept.) [/em]
