For as long as he can remember, Robbie has always received special presents for his birthday. When he doesn’t get a special present on his tenth birthday, he grows angry and makes a far-fetched wish on a falling star. When his wish comes true, Robbie quickly discovers himself separated from everything he has ever known, in a dangerous world he has only dreamed about.|
In this memorable tale, author Rita Salter creates an out-of-this-world fantasy for Robbie, who wakes up to find that he is a newborn Brontosaur. Confused and afraid, Robbie must learn how to adapt to his new surroundings in order to survive in this dangerous world. He seeks comfort from an older Brontosaur, Bronella, and companionship from Saura, both of whom remind him of his friends and family back home.
Together, Robbie and his new friends struggle to survive against the Terrible Ones, a vicious group of meat-eating dinosaurs led by the ferocious T-rex Tyra. As Robbie’s plan unfolds for the final standoff with Tyra, he must decide if he is willing to risk losing his life for the sake of his friends.
