Camp Rex by Molly Idle

“What could be more fun than a camping trip with a good friend?

“When that friend is T. Rex!

“It’s important to set a few wilderness safety guidelines first. . . like making sure he stays on the trail. And does not disturb the local wildlife. And knows how to build a safe campfire. But sometimes dinosaurs have a different way of doing things, and that’s why it’s best to be prepared . . . for anything!”         [JPB IDLE]

“In order to survive, Will must join a traveling circus, enlisting the aid of Mr. Dorian, the ringmaster and leader of the troupe, and Maren, a girl his age who is an expert escape artist. With villains fast on their heels, can Will and Maren reach Will’s father and save The Boundless before someone winds up dead? By the best-selling author of the Silverwing trilogy.”                    [J OPPEL]
