Best of all they befriend Marlin and together they embark on a series of thrilling adventures - the first being to escape from the adults who fear them and are hunting them.

The Secret Dinosaur Book 1 is a lively adventure that is certain to appeal to dinosaur lovers of all ages.
Marlin is on a class trip to a dinosaur museum when he discovers a forgotten room. Upon further inspection he finds that the room is home to a marvelous robotic dinosaur named Protos. After fidgeting with the metal wonder, Marlin is surprised when Protos springs to life and leads him to yet another room with many more robotic dinosaurs. Marlin is awestruck and eagerly seeks advice from his Uncle Gus on how to bring them all to life like Protos. After a week of hard work, the dinosaurs are ready, but before Marlin can complete his task the grumpy museum manager, Mr. Grubbler, snatches him up and calls the police. Will Marlin be able to help his new robotic friends?
I found The Secret Dinosaur Book 1 to be a quick moving well-written tale filled with fantastic prehistoric characters and an inquisitive young boy who gets caught up in a wonderful chance of a lifetime to bring these amazing creatures, even if they're metal, back to life. I enjoyed this story and am anxious to find out what happens next in Book 2.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of The Secret Dinosaur Book 1. Available on Amazon.
