Everyone knows the dinosaur gene skips a generation.

So it isn't a complete surprise when Sawyer sprouts spikes and a tail before the start of fifth grade. After all, his grandfather was part stegosaurus.

Being a dinosaur is pretty cool, despite a sudden craving for vegetables. Except some of the kids at school aren't too thrilled with his spikey tail even if he covers them with tennis balls. Sawyer is relieved when a couple of the bullies mysteriously stop coming to school, until he discovers a secret more shocking than Dino DNA! The disappearing kids are in for a galactically horrible fate...and only Sawyer, with the help of his friends Elliot and Sylvia, can rescue them.

"A hilarious adventure and as sharp as a stegosaurus's tail...fantastic." ―Nathan Bransford, author of Jacob Wonderbar and the Cosmic Space Kapow on Dinosaur Boy

"Funny, fast-paced, and filled with surprising twists, Dinosaur Boy is a charming story... will have boys and girls roaring for more!" -Nikki Loftin, author of The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy and Nightingale's Nest

A Junior Library Guild selection

And don't miss the thrilling sequel Dinosaur Boy Saves Mars ― coming February 2016.

Review:

"An entertaining barrel ride past sheaves of middle-grade themes from bullying to racial identity." - Kirkus

"Credible characters and real-life issues like bullying, appreciating differences, and being true to oneself keep Oakes's (The Veil) series kickoff grounded...Oakes draws on everything from the dubiousness of zero-tolerance bullying policies (especially when they're being used to ship students to Jupiter) to the importance of tolerance and the injustice of discrimination to create a story with unexpected depth" - Publishers Weekly

"Oakes emphasizes the effects of bullying and peer pressure. There are also plenty of fun science and sci-fi ideas woven throughout. The trim size and plot-driven pacing make this an ideal recommendation for reluctant readers...A fun and funny read with layers of deeper issues" - School Library Journal

""Oakes emphasizes the effects of bullying and peer pressure. There are also plenty of fun science and sci-fi ideas woven throughout. The trim size and plot-driven pacing make this an ideal recommendation for reluctant readers... A fun and funny read with layers of deeper issues."" - Austin American-Statesman

"A rollicking, action-packed read...a deceptively layered take on middle-grade social dynamics that will have your young reader appreciating Oakes' storytelling twists and turns as much as her lessons about acceptance" - Austin American-Statesman

"A fun mix of school drama, science fiction, and humor, the story explores the daily hassles of living as part dinosaur, along with the real pain of bullying." - Booklist
