Observing tea-time etiquette with a T-Rex as your guest creates some unusual difficulties for this pair of hosts, in what becomes a most amusing party.

Size is used very effectively, often showing the children in full, while the T-Rex expands beyond the page's confines. Composition plays a huge role in the book's visual humour, especially as this large beast participates in this dainty activity.

A rounded style, with soft warm colours perfectly portrays the sweet nature of both the tea party, and the characters, even the T-Rex's teeth are rounded. The style also reflects on the audience this book is aimed at, as most girls will prefer this more cuddly version to its ferocious counterpart.

Some guests cause much havoc, and this one brings about more than usual, even blowing furniture and the children away in some very funny scenes. Even so, he does observe the proprieties, and in the end creates a very memorable picture book.

The pictures are so adorable in this book! You really have to look at them to get the full effect and see the detail. I hope they create a sequel!
