About the Book

This charming picture book from author-illustrator Anya Glazer follows two sisters in a celebration—and adorable demonstration—of how sisterhood and encouraged question asking can lead to the most surprising journeys. A perfect, hilarious read for families with soon-to-be new siblings!

Bea is curious about EVERYTHING.

Does peanut butter count as a vegetable?
What are belly buttons for?
How do toasters work?

Lucky for her, big sister Ada always has an answer ready! (Toasters work by magic.)

But as Bea’s questions get harder, Ada takes to inventing some answers. And when one of her responses takes them into a forest full of unknowns…the way through becomes much less clear. How will Ada and Bea find their way back home?

Critical Praise

Praise for Thesaurus Has a Secret: “Salutary messages about the pleasures of words and reading (and reading aloud), the art is festooned with appropriate or playfully altered classics.” - Kirkus Reviews

"In this sweet tale of an anthropomorphized dinosaur, Thesaurus lives up to his name and then some. A charming picture book for young readers, especially dinosaur lovers, about the joy of sharing a good book." - School Library Journal
