Baby dinosaurs are fun pets. . . . BIG dinosaurs are a problem.
Hiding a baby dinosaur is hard work. And it’s about to get even harder! Frank and Sam’s grandma has found a new fossil, and it looks just like baby dinosaur Peanut’s horn . . . only a thousand times bigger! Will Peanut grow to be that huge, too? How do you hide a dinosaur when he is as big as a house? It won’t be easy. Especially when scientists come to the dig site to make a movie about the new fossil.
This fun chapter book series is perfect for kids who love to laugh out loud while learning about dinosaurs. Back matter includes a glossary of dino terms.
