We Don't Eat Our Classmates by Ryan T. Higgins

I first fell in love with Higgins' writing with Mother Bruce, a story about a grumpy old bear who becomes a parent to three wild geese.  Well, he became their mother after they hatched while he was trying to cook their eggs, but you know, details.  The series is hilarious and I highly recommend them.  

We Don't Eat Our Classmates is a hilarious take on first day of school jitters.  Penelope Rex is very nervous about starting school.  Worried about friends and backpacks and lunches.  When she discovers that her entire class is made up of human children she panics and eats them.  Luckily her teacher is there to make her spit them back out.  Penelope spends the rest of her day trying to being a good friend but the children are now scared of her.  Much to Penelope's disappointment, making friends is hard and doesn't come easily.  It isn't until a run-in with the class pet that Penelope learns that it's really not nice to be eaten.  

Very funny and sweet, We Don't Eat Our Classmates is here just in time for the start of a new school year.
