Summary
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. . . .

The hilarious Dino Files chapter book series follows a nine-year-old dinosaur expert, his paleontologist grandparents, a cat named Saurus, and fossils that might not be so extinct!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Frank loves visiting his grandparents in the summer. His grandmother is a famous paleontologist and, along with his grandfather, owns the Dinosaur Education Center of Wyoming. A bad case of sunburn keeps Frank stuck inside with his obnoxious cousin Samantha, and just when he reaches his breaking point, Gram comes back to pick everyone up to show off a startling discovery: a fossilized egg. Or is it? Late at night, the egg hatches a real baby dinosaur, which Frank names Peanut. He tries to keep Peanut a secret, but an emergency forces his hand. A cliff-hanger Gram has found something else sets the scene for the next book in the series. Frank is wry, funny, and charming, and his convincing first-person narrative captures the spirit of the adventure. The characters, while seeming stock at first, evolve into characters who, if not very complex, have their own personalities. There will always be kids fascinated by dinosaurs, and this is just the series for them.--Scanlon, Donna Copyright 2016 Booklist"
