Tiny T. Rex and the Grand Ta-Da! by Jonathan Stutzman and Jay Fleck

Happy, happy Thursday! I'm thrilled Jonathan Stutzman returned to Watch. Connect. Read. to finish my sentences. We discussed Tiny T. Rex and the Grand Ta-Da , Jay Fleck's illustrations, magic tricks, and more. I wrote the words in purple, and Jonathan wrote the words in black . Congratulations, Jonathan!  Jay Fleck’s cover illustration and Jennifer Tolo Pierce’s cover design for Tiny T. Rex and the Grand Ta-Da is downright adorable, capturing that endearing, exuberant sweetness that makes Tiny T. Rex such a loveable, cheer-inducing character. Plus, this cover marks the first appearance of Pointy (Tiny’s best friend) on the front! Go Pointy! Anytime he’s in the art, it’s is a double-boost of cuteness… I mean come on, look at them both in their little magician costumes. Tiny T. Rex and the Grand Ta-Da tells the story of Tiny and Pointy’s big goal of winning their school’s talent show. Even though they have their own talents, they decide to work together to do the greatest magic
