Praise for Roxy the Last Unisaurus Rex

Praise for Roxy the Last Unisaurus Rex:

"Eva Chen has really hit the mark with her Juno Valentine series, but is branching out into children's literature in a huge way with Roxy the Last Unisaurus Rex...It's not often you can find a children's book that pleases both the child and the parent reading it 800 times, but ROXY feels like a good fit. And any picture book that makes me want to wallpaper my house with its pages is more than OK by me." —Romper

Eva Chen; illustrated by Matthew Rivera

Eva Chen is a first-generation Chinese-American who grew up in New York City. She blames her deviation from pre-med at Johns Hopkins University on a love of fashion and beauty instilled in her by her mother, whose perfect bob and lipstick made a permanent imprint on her impressionable young mind. Previously the editor in chief of Lucky, Eva has also written for ELLE, Vogue, Teen Vogue,Vogue China, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal. She is currently the head of fashion partnerships at Instagram, where she is guilty of the occasional duck-face selfie. Eva lives in New York City with her husband and two children. She is the New York Times-bestselling author of Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes; A Is for Awesome; Juno Valentine and the Fantastic Fashion Adventure; 3 2 1 Awesome!; and Roxy the Last Unisaurus Rex.

Matthew Rivera earned his bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the University of Arizona. After many years of being an art director for agencies, corporations, and toymakers, Matthew now writes and illustrates stories for children. He loves sharing leafy greens with Mavis, his pet bunny, and dreams of one day sharing PB&Js with a Unisaurus Rex.
