Our favorite time of the week! Susan Hanlin Norwell reads and models We Don’t Eat Our Classmates by Ryan T. Higgins. Join the fun!

"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! 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 story from award-winning author-illustrator Ryan T. Higgins.
