A Mysterious Egg

Illustrated by Mike Boldt

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.

"There will always be kids fascinated by
dinosaurs, and this is just the series for them." -Booklist

Too Big to Hide

Illustrated by Mike Boldt

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.

"The plot thickens in this easy-reading follow-up." - Kirkus
