Edwina, The Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct (Mo Willems)

Edwina, The Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct
Mo Willems
Fiction, YA Picture Book
****+ (Good/Great)

DESCRIPTION: Edwina is helpful. Edwina is friendly. Edwina bakes chocolate chip cookies. Edwina is also a dinosaur, and that means she should be extinct. Young Reginald tries his best to convince the townsfolk that Edwina shouldn't be here, but nobody will listen - nobody except maybe Edwina herself.

REVIEW: Another quick read during down time at work... This fun little story tweaks those pedantic know-it-alls everyone is too familiar with, even grown-ups. As nice as Edwina is, as much as everyone loves her and her chocolate chip cookies, Reginald just cannot stand not being right. It's a silly tale, with a nice moral about how being right isn't always the most important thing in life.
