Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...
So, QUICK NOTE...blog is pretty much shut down at the moment. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. So, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) have to take a back burner. My apologies to any tours or promised review dates...hopefully I'll be able to "reopen" one day, but it's just not in sight as of yet. Here's hoping your reading adventures continue on with no issues! Until we meet again, stay safe, check in from time to time, and happy reading!

STORYBOOK SUNDAY: Cookiesaurus Rex by Amy Fellner & Nate Evans

HI guys and gals!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.





We're celebrating another day of bookish fun with Storybook Sunday! For those not up to speed on the post, I read a lot of great storybooks and thought, why not give them their own day in the sun. Hence, Storybook Sunday! Feel free to join the fun and create a post on your own site with the same name. I'd love to see any linked up in the comments! Anywho...back to the matter at hand.

Today, we're taking a tasty trip through the pages with a narrator with attitude to spare that's not exactly of our time period...or flesh and blood...more icing and dough.  *ahem*  Yes, our green friend is definitely someone you'd invite to dinner, or perhaps more accurately dessert, and he's not gonna take no for an answer, nor anything less than the best for his outer couture.  Ready or not, make way for today's flour caked, icing covered, sparkly or not, book of choice...

About the book...
As soon as Cookiesaurus Rex comes out of the oven, he declares that he is King of All Cookies. He should be frosted before all of the standard-shaped cookies, in a nice bright green. But the other cookies are getting sprinkles, or shiny stars, or even gumdrops . . . WAIT ONE STINKIN’ STOMPIN’ MINUTE! Cookiesaurus wants a do-over. Problem is, he might not end up with the kind of “do” he wants. Readers will love the funny back-and-forth between this cheeky cookie and the hand that frosts him. See who gets his licks in at the end!

I admit it.
I was sold from the word GO on this one!
I mean, COME ON!
It's a book...about cookies...
...with a DINOSAUR cookie "ruling" them all...
...or at least trying to. 
How can you NOT be curious? 

Readers of all ages will be ROARing with delight as we see our growly friend go from dignified top hat wearing dino to a ballerina, a clown, and a few things in-between.  The funniest to me?  The baby...and what the illustrator does with those requested chocolate chips, BAHAHAHAHA!  As the story progresses, Cookisaurus Rex is determined to get exactly what he wishes...but, um, yeah...while it's filled to the brim with humor, it DOES remind us why we should always be ever so careful what we wish for...*gulp*...and always remember NOT to bite the hand that feeds us...or decorates us.

In the end, it's a terrific read that puts us right in the mix, so to speak, as the battle between the decorator and his/her victim...I mean, creation...plays out.  It not only gives readers a laugh or a giggle, but invites them to explore their creative sides in the kitchen. and stretch their imaginations to see just how a few simple changes can make a MAJOR difference.  So go ahead...take a bite out of your storybook time with this prehistorically enhanced baking adventure.  You won't be sorry...but you might need a glass of milk.   Fair warning!
