#1 - A Mysterious Egg
Frank's grandma is a famous paleontologist (that's a dinosaur scientist). But she's also an adult who makes up rules. Rules like: no digging for dinosaur bones when you have a sunburn. That means Frank is stuck playing inside with his annoying cousin, Samantha. But then Grandma finds a fossil of an egg! And when Frank and Sam sneak into the dino lab late at night, they find something even more amazing.

#2 - Too Big to Hide
Taking care of a baby dinosaur is hard work. And it's even harder when you can't tell anyone about him! Frank and Sam are good at feeding, cleaning, and walking Peanut. But their grandma has found a new fossil and it looks just like Peanut's horn . . . only a thousand times bigger! Will baby Peanut grow to be that huge, too? How do you hide a dinosaur when he becomes 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.

#3 - It's Not a Dinosaur!
Frank and his cousin Sam believe anything is possible. They have a pet dinosaur, after all! So when Frank's dad tells them he saw a Nothosaurus in the river, they can't wait to look for it on their camping trip. The Notho is a prehistoric reptile, not a dinosaur . . . but is she dangerous? There's only one way to know for sure: find that dinosaur—er, reptile!
