Coming September 26th, 2017, Disney-Hyperion

Co-written with Nate Evans
As soon as Cookiesaurus Rex comes out of the oven, he declares that he is King of All Cookies. He should be frosted before all of the standard-shaped cookies, in a nice bright green. But the other cookies are getting sprinkles, or shiny stars, or even gumdrops . . . WAIT ONE STINKIN’ STOMPIN’ MINUTE! Cookiesaurus wants a do-over. Problem is, he might not end up with the kind of “do” he wants. Readers will love the funny back-and-forth between this cheeky cookie and the hand that frosts him. See who gets his licks in at the end!

Advance Praise:

“This was an original read all about cookie fun and decorating. It’s perfect for children 4 and older…”
–YA Books Central

“This is hilarious and adorable with a unique cast of characters! Cookiesaurus cracked me up (one particular page of gumdrops especially) with his mischief. Loved the story and fun illustrations. Cookies and dinosaurs? Such a great mix!”    –Author Terry Lynn Johnson

Book Reviews

“Ford’s bright and funny illustrations perfectly complement Dominy and Evans’ tongue-in-cheek text. The cheeky dino is full of personality and spunk, and his facial expressions are priceless, inevitably recalling Daffy’s in the classic cartoon “Duck Amuck.” Have cookie dough and frosting ready, as kids are sure to want to try their own hands at decorating after a few laugh-filled rereads.” (Picture book. 3-7) –Kirkus
