Description

A laugh-out-loud, quirky new middle grade series that looks at bullying in an entirely new and inventive way.

Sawyer's grandfather was part Stegosaurus, so it wasn't a complete surprise when puberty included growing spikes and a tail. But when the kids who bully him at school go missing it's up to Sawyer and his friends, Elliott and Sylvie, to solve the mystery

Despite the Principal's Zero Tolerance Policy, Sawyer becomes a bully magnet, befriended only by Elliot aka "Gigantor" and the weird new girl. When the bullies start disappearing, Sawyer is relieved--until he discovers a secret about the principal that's more shocking than Dino DNA. The bullies are in for a galactically horrible fate...and it's up to Sawyer and his friends to rescue them.
