Description

When Zack Norak's father, a paleontologist, joined a dig for dinosaur bones in Utah, Zack knew the expedition was a disaster waiting to happen. Why would any scientist waste his time on a bunch of skeletons? Even if these dinosaurs were called the "terrible lizards" of Utah, they were still just a bunch of old bones. But when Zack finds a giant egg that hatches a baby raptor, the teenager discovers there are more than dead bones at the dig. Soon he is face-to-face with mother raptor. Razor-sharp teeth flashing, mom is determined to get her baby back. And suddenly, a horrifying question is clawing at Zack's mind: What if there are more eggs? Paul Zindel, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, is noted for his suspenseful books for young adults that combine science-fantasy and adventure. Other Zindel novels available from Recorded Books include Reef of Death, The Doom Stone, and Loch.

Professional reviews

"Zindel writes his young adult novel as a fast-paced, action-adventure, capitalizing on the craze for dinosaurs. The teenaged leads are sincere, angst-ridden blunderers who march into the monsters' lair with no backup, no weaponry, no coherent plan. The listener can't decide whether to laugh or cry over the vacuum in rational motivation and the ridiculous underlying premises. The reader, however, gives it all he's got. Ganser has a young-sounding voice and uses it to full effect, with snarls and pacing and accent delineating the various characters. (Too bad about the book itself.) D.R.W.
