Readers!!! Kiddos!!! I have made no secret that I am probably Dexter T. Rexter’s biggest fan (except maybe for my own kid), so I am SO EXCITED to have gotten a sneak peek at the cover for Dexter’s newest adventure! Wanna see? You ready?
First, you have to sing the Dexter T. Rexter song. No, I’m not kidding. Come on:
STOMP THROUGH THE SWAMP!
CHOMP! CHOMP! CHOMP!
Okay, now we’re ready. I present to you…
Dexter T. Rexter is on a plane-for the very first time.
Dexter can’t wait to go on vacation with his best friend, Jack. Supercool orange sunglasses? Check. Nifty travel hat? Check. Plane tickets? Uh, what? Dexter may be the toughest, coolest dinosaur around, but everyone knows T. Rexes don’t fly! If anyone could do it, he could. It’s just that he’s suddenly feeling a little hot. And maybe a little nervous. But just as he starts to melt down, he notices Jack looks upset. Dexter realizes he has to be brave enough for both of them. And maybe, just maybe, he’ll start to have a bit of fun in the air.
Both nervous and funny, Dexter tells the readers what he’s feeling and even asks their advice as he comes to understand that being brave with a friend makes everything a little better. And hey, those cookies during the flight don’t hurt, either!
Vacation for Dexter is out on April 16, 2019! I know, I can’t wait, either!
