"This title is a delight . . . Funny, colorful, and different." --School Library Journal"Roaring to the forest at large that he's after his breakfast, Tyrannosaurus sends Ankylosaurus, Parasaurolophus, and the rest of the heavily armored dinos fleeing in panic. But not Edna. . . . Readers will join the chorus of grateful herbivores in proclaiming that Edna is 'awesome.'" --Kirkus Reviews "Rendered in radiant hues and punctuated with crowd-pleasing proclamations. . . . Rees and Henry prove that 'fierce' can have feathers, too." --Publishers Weekly
