Gr 5 Up–Evie is accidentally thrown back in time to an era where dinosaurs roam the earth. She discovers and grabs an egg, and when the creature hatches, they instantly bond. Along the way, she stumbles on a man-made shelter that once housed other time travelers. With her new dinosaurlike friend, Ada, and the recordings left behind, Evie adapts and learns to survive. But she misses her moms terribly and knows that she must figure out how to get back to them. The fantastic artwork, with bright and vivid illustrations of prehistoric creatures, will charm middle graders. The expressive colors, detailed drawings, and panoramic scenes of a beautiful and undeveloped Earth create a magnificent adventure.
VERDICT Young readers will thoroughly enjoy this story.
