Some tea parties are for grown-ups.
Some are for girls.

But sometimes that is not enough for special guests,

Introducing Tea Rex, a guest that just about any child would love to have to tea!

love everything except the actual physical book : I added this to my daughter’s bday wish list while it was still a pre-order. It arrived today as a gift and we read it right away. LOVE the illustrations and the story. She quickly picked up on the subtle humor and increasing irony as the story unfolded. My daughter is very into both dinosaurs and tea parties, so this is a delightful tale, and spot on appropriate for a 4 year old. My only complaint is that the book is so cheaply made.

Gift My daughter loved this book and requested it for her birthday, even at 32 years of age she can still appreciate children’s books.
