All the kids missing their classrooms will enjoy the return of the beloved Penelope Rex and her friends in the new picture book We Will Rock Our Classmates.

In We Will Rock Our Classmates, Penelope wants to rock the talent show, but has to overcome some nerves.

Penelope is a T. rex, and she’s very good at it. She also likes to rock out on guitar! With the school talent show coming up, Penelope can’t wait to perform for her classmates. But sharing who you are can be show-stoppingly scary, especially when it’s not what people expect. Will Penelope get by with a little help from her friends?

Designed for preschoolers, this book will have kids and their parents laughing out loud at visual jokes, funny surprises, and unexpected humor.

While the book presents humor, it’s also heartwarming as Penelope’s character will resonate with readers who are learning what it means to be yourself.

We Will Rock Our Classmates is the follow-up to the #1 New York Times best-selling picture book We Don't Eat Our Classmates, by author Ryan T. Higgins, who’s also the phenomenal talent behind the Mother Bruce series.

Order We Will Rock Our Classmates from your favorite retailer and enjoy story time laughs with your family!
