The case of the Truncated Troodon is an enjoyable mystery. My daughter loves the story and she is only three years old. Whether the characters are exploring the landscape of the Late Cretaceous Period or are surrounded by hungry Troodon raptors there is never a dull moment. The story moves along at a great pace while educating the reader of Earth's former inhabitants. We look forward to reading more of Professor Barrister's mysteries.

This is a terrific book. It has appealing characters, a good story, and sound science. The writing is crisp and clear and the illustrations are great fun.

My nine year old daughter came home from her fourth grade class after learning about dinosaurs. She was very excited for once so I searched for a book and found this one. My hope was that it would encourage her continued reading and to take more interest in science. When it arrived, I started flipping through the pages and the next thing I knew I had finished the book. She's reading it now and enjoys it greatly. I'm not sure who is anticipating the next book more...her or me!

Stephen Penner has done a masterful job of education and entertainment in "The Case of the Truncated Troodon." This story is lively, witty and informative and is sure to capture both the attention and the imagination of young readers. And as an adult reader, I learned some things, too! Mr. Penner's writing challenges his youthful readers rather than patronizing them, and his illustrations are first-rate. Bravo--let's see more in this series.

Loved the book for a variety of reasons. It was a good story surrounding interesting facts about dinosaurs. The section in the back on Dino-facts was great. More important, the problems raised in the story were solved by human ingenuity, both on the part of the professor and the children. Keep the stories coming, Professor Barrister.
