Exciting adventures in this easy to read series about two boys and the dangerous dinosaurs they encounter – especially the deadly Tyrannosaurus Rex. Jamie’s dad is opening a dinosaur museum in Dinosaur Cove. Jamie expects to find some fossils but never expects to find any dinosaurs alive. After all, they’ve been extinct for years, haven’t they? Soon Jamie and his new friend Tom find themselves desperate to avoid the deadly creatures. Loads of dinosaur fact boxes support the stories making them a useful mine of information too.

Catching the Speedy Thief by Rex Stone
Welcome to the Cretaceous! It's a wild and dangerous place but it's too awesome to resist! So Jamie and Tom set off to the Cretaceous again by stepping in the fossilized footprints in their secret smugglers' cave. They decide to try some crabbing and manage to catch a real-life prehistoric crab. But as the boys inspect the amazing creature a sneaky velociraptor runs up and grabs the Fossil Finder. Disaster! The boys have to get it back - if they don't, then future scientists might find a fossilized Fossil Finder and that could mess up the whole of dinosaur science! The chase is underway - through a valley of geysers spurting boiling water - and on to the velociraptor's lair...
This is the fifth book in the hugely popular Dinosaur Cove series which has now sold over a million copies. This new edition includes a set of Cretaceous collector cards.
