We Don't Eat Our Classmates

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! Despite her teacher's insistence that Penelope spit them out, and the firm declaration that classmates are not snacks, Penelope just can't resist. 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...

Readers will gobble up this hilarious new story from award-winning author-illustrator Ryan T. Higgins, which uses a hearty dash of silliness to teach kids a lesson about being kind to others — and a gentle reminder about the importance of treating others how you want to be treated.

Penelope returns in We Will Rock Our Classmates.

"[Penelope is] startled to find out that her classmates are all children, 'So she ate them. Because children are delicious.' Understandably, this makes it difficult for her classmates to trust her. It takes an encounter with a hungry goldfish to teach Penelope how it really feels to be eaten. Despite the fact that she’s a ravenous carnivore, Penelope’s stuffed-animal snout, her tearful look of distress, and her pink overalls make her too adorable to dislike. It’s clear that she’s doing the best she can, though she does have a few setbacks ('Mrs. Noodleman, Penelope ate William Omoto again!'). Higgins once again delivers sassy dialogue, flawless comic pacing, and faith in the ability of children to learn and grow." — Publishers Weekly
