This light tale greets the deeper theme of jealousy with humor and will be a fun read aloud.

- Metafiction-ish: Plays with the structure of the book by having the character interact with the hidden decorator. Since T-Rex looks at the reader several times and appears to be directly addressing the audience, there is a feeling that the intent is for the reader to feel involved, or be the decorator. But the decorator’s hands and face are visible in the story which limits the reader’s involvement.
I received a review copy of this book from Disney-Hyperion in exchange for an honest review.
