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!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A lesson in tea party etiquette wrapped in a story of a little girl and her brother (and cuddlesome stuffed bear) hosting a tea party with a Tyrannosaurus Rex as their only guest. They have to pull him through the door, he's much too large, for both the chairs and the tiny cup and saucers, and being a carnivore, he starts eyeing his table mate, the "bear" with a hungry glint. With the tea party for girls and the dinosaur for boys - or both for both - this book enchants with its beautiful illustrations and a smidge of proper manners fed to its reader as deliciously as any tea cake. Lovely.
1. Emily Post vs. T. Rex. Emily wins! 2. a retelling of Cat in the Hat (not really, but almost), with a better ending. 3. I love this book! It makes me smile. I was a little hesitant to give this book to my grandson. I didn't know if his father would freak. A book about a tea party for a little boy??? They love it.
