As a longtime upper elementary school teacher, I can picture many of my students enjoying this book, especially those who read series such as Animorphs and Artemis Fowl. Highly recommend to your favorite dinosaur loving, sci-fi reading, fourth or fifth grader!
'I run four middle school libraries and the demand for this book is incredible! This book was so cute. It is really a kids book and a lot of times when I get children's books they have no pictures in them. Simon did a great job. I really enjoyed this book and will recommend to all. Thank you Author!!!
Rex, its main character, is a 14 year old boy with technological enhancements. His caretaker and best friend, Rion, resembles a Yeti. The plot hinges on their interactions with Tarock, a Menosaur (an alien half human/half dino) from the distant planet Prehystoria from which Earth’s dinosaurs originated. Backstory, aliens created Earth’s dinosaurs, kill them, left Earth, and are returning to take over the place.
The plot: Rex and Rio go to the site of a meteorite impact, encounter Tarock (who resembles a baby T-Rex), alert US Marines attack, the good guys escape and later hook up with Tarock, Rex and Tarock communicate via technical means, and the adventure evolves from there. There’s a subplot involving NASA, another involving Prehistoria, and lots of action. Rex, the young, bespectacled protagonist, is an unlikely hero, but proves his mettle while Rio is his protector and devoted friend. The tale is written with a light touch, often humorous, and I found myself laughing from time to time. It includes colorful graphics. A real page turner, I think it would appeal especially to boys.
Simon J. House created the atmosphere of the book very well. I could picture the prehistorical surroundings, adventures, woods, aero-car chases. My attention was held at all times. The book is beautifully written. The multiple characters are really impressed and I like their originality and complexity. However, the protagonist, Rex, is my favorite. I enjoyed the book so much and I would recommend it to anyone!
Well done Simon, you've created an amazing tale and I look forward to reading more from you!
