WATCH OUT FOR TINY DINOSAURS!!!
Danny and Lin are expert secret keepers. They’re brave, smart, and maybe a little bit crazy. Which, as it turns out, is exactly what you need to be to take care of a rare collection of hungry, curious, extra-tiny dinosaurs.
But when their friend Professor Penrod sends them a mysterious package filled with toothy, scratchy microsaurs hungry enough to chew through walls, along with a very large microsaur egg, even the bravest adventurers might find themselves outnumbered and in over their head.
Honey, I Shrunk The Kids meets Jurassic Park in this fabulous illustrated chapter book series by Dustin Hansen.
About the Author
Dustin Hansen, author of Game On! and the Microsaurs series, was raised in rural Utah, where he spent many days hiking red rock canyons that once belonged to the dinosaurs. But even the beautiful mountains couldn’t keep him away from his love of pixels and controllers. He has been writing and creating art for the video game industry for more than two decades. Dustin and his family live in rural Utah once again, where he is the current king of the family Mario Kart circuit.
