We Don’t Eat Our Classmates

The book “We Don’t Eat Our Classmatesby Ryan T. Higgins is an adorable and funny tale about Penelope Rex. It’s her first day of school and she can’t wait to meet her classmates. But it’s hard to make human friends when they’re so darn delicious! 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. . . .
