After twelve-year-old Nathan's pesky younger brother Ryan claims to have found a dinosaur fossil, they are suddenly transported into a misty world where Ryan's toy dinosaurs are alive. Things haven't been easy for 12-year-old Nathan since his mom went back to work. First of all, he has to come straight home after school to baby-sit his pesky eight-year-old brother, Ryan, which means no time to hang out and shoot baskets. And worse, since their mom appropriated Nathan's room for an office, Nathan has to share a room with Ryan and contend with Ryan's weird dinosaur terrarium and endless chatter about prehistoric life. A freak event lands the brothers in Ryan's terrarium and brings the dinosaur habitat to life, a once-in-a-lifetime experience with adventures and fun, touching and scary. Ryan never wants to leave, but Nathan knows better, especially when the Tyrannosaurus rex comes a little too close for comfort. As they navigate the prehistoric landscape, the brothers learn a lot about dinosaurs--and each other. This is a fine addition to the endless dinosaur canon, and readers will enjoy the fantasy of meeting and getting to know dinos from a closer view as well as appreciate the developing relationship between the two brothers
