HEROES A2Z #4
DIGGING FOR DINOS
Beaches, Bones, and Petoskey Stones.
Who Knows What Dinosaurs are Made of?
In this adventure, a trip to the lake turns into anything but a day at the beach. Digging in the sand is usually a part of making sand castles, but our heroes have other plans. They dig so deep that they discover something terrifying and better off buried. Worse, it's got a bone to pick with them--several hundred, actually.
The 14-book Heroes A2Z chapter book series follows the funny adventures of three superhero kids from Traverse City, Michigan. Each illustrated book includes over one hundred drawings.
Meet Abigail, the oldest of the heroes. When it comes to sports, she can't be beat--not at arm wrestling, not at archery, and certainly not at aces on the tennis court. Andrew comes next. He's Abigail's twin, youngest by a measly eight minutes. If it has wheels, Andrew can ride it. He's amazing, astounding, and accomplished on wheels. Last but definitely least is Baby Zoë. She's the strongest of the heroes, like Superman in a diaper. She can't walk that well, but she can fly and shoot lasers out of her eyes. Zoë puts the "aww" in awesome.
Throughout their adventures, the superheroes battle kung fu kitties, dinosaurs, aliens, monkey-driven monster trucks, and a rockstar from outer space. They travel to the South Pole, the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame in Ohio, and to scenic Mackinac Island. Wherever danger lurks, wherever villains strike, expect Heroes A2Z to save the day!

Co-authors Charles David Clasman and David Anthony have written over 20 books for kids in three series, including Mystery Underground, Heroes A2Z, and Knightscares.
As a child, Charlie struggled early in school. But after a summer in which his uncles read spooky stories to him in the dark by flashlight, everything changed. Charlie became an avid reader and his grades dramatically improved. Now he understands the positive influence reading for fun can have on a child. He's living proof. Knowing this, Charlie writes with unbridled enthusiasm and imagination.
Today Charlie lives in Oxford, Michigan with his wife, daughter (when she visits from college), and two adorable cats. When he isn't writing or reading, he enjoys playing guitar, juggling, and gardening.
David Anthony received his first typewriter in the eighth grade and has been banging on keyboards ever since. As a child, some of David's best friends were books. He always loved to read. A friend first inspired him to write, and the steady encouragement of his parents and teachers kept him at it. Today he writes with the passion of his youth. No story can ever be too fantastic, too impossible, too spooky, or too silly.
David currently lives in West Bloomfield, Michigan with a patient wife, a semi-patient son, and a demanding dog. At least two of them usually need a haircut. When not writing or reading, David plays tabletop games with his son, engages in social media, and roots for the Detroit Red Wings.
Since the publication of their first book in 2003, Charlie and David have given more than 1,000 entertaining and educational book talks at schools and libraries. The duo has spoken at numerous literary conferences and has been featured on radio, television, and in newspapers. They appear regularly at bookstores, festivals, and art shows.
