Dinosaurs, Martians, and mystery, oh my! You will love this hilarious, action-packed adventure series. What would life be like if you were part dinosaur?
When you're part Stegosaurus life can be a little crazy. (Yes, sleeping with plates is weird. No, dino-human hybrids do not have second brains in their butts.) But Sawyer's life is normal(ish) - until he's yanked aboard a UFO and sent on a mission to Mars.
Sawyer, Elliot and Sylvie travel to Mars to find her missing father, but they find even bigger trouble. Mars is trying to kick Pluto out of the solar system. And the fate of both planets will be decided by the upcoming Pluto VS Mars soccer match.
It's an intergalactic mess, and only Sawyer can save Mars, defend Pluto and protect the galaxy
"I liked it. It was a good book, I enjoyed it. The people in it were good."
This was an enjoyable book. I have to admit, At first I thought it was a little ridiculous to have a boy half human, half dinosaur, but it ended up working out okay.
My son kept asking.. "WHY did he need to have tennis balls on his spikes? Why would they be sharp mom"? That detail kept getting lost on him, and I really don't know why. :)
Sawyer is struggling with figuring out what his Passion is for a paper he needs to write for school. He was unable to answer that question so his mom got an extension on this paper for him, but his grandfather snatched he and his friends up before he could get it written. The topic weighed in Sawyer's mind as he worked through the mystery of Sylvie's dad's disappearance and what was planned for the people of Mars. By the end of his book he discovered what his passion was.
Cory Putman Oakes wrote a book that explores what might happen if we take genetic research too far and/or put it in the hands of people who don't exercise due caution. He turned it into an enjoyable book about a boy and his friends needing to find out more about who they are and in the process help two groups of "people" to mature in their relationships with each other.
