For Danny Corbett, finding a dinosaur’s jaw complete with tooth is a once-in-a-lifetime event. It certainly seems more interesting than working on his science project. The last thing Danny expects is that the tooth will send him, his house in Parrsboro, his sister Kim, and his wacky aunt Ziggy back to the Early Jurassic age, millions of years ago.


Weekend in the Jurassic is: informative, fun, magical, easy-reading, Canadian.
