Wednesdays with David: Dinosaur Boy Saves Mars

Synopsis via Goodreads: When you're part Stegosaurus, life can be a little crazy. (Yes, sleeping with plates is weird. No, dino-human hybrids do not have second brains in their butts.) But Sawyer's life is normal(ish) -- until he's yanked aboard a UFO and sent on a mission to Mars. Sawyer, Elliot and Sylvie travel to Mars to find her missing father, but they find even bigger trouble. Mars is trying to kick Pluto out of the solar system. And the fate of both planets will be decided by the upcoming Pluto vs. Mars soccer match. Of course. It's an intergalactic mess, and only Sawyer can save Mars, defend Pluto and protect the galaxy...

David says: Dinosaur Boy is a book which has a lot of things that young children and teens will love. It has adventure, mystery, fun, and space dinosaurs (just kidding)! With Martians, Plutonians, and soccer...SOCCER? Everybody will love this book. I really hope a third Dinosaur Boy book will be written soon!

Note: I usually chime in on books read with David, but this is one I didn't read. So you are getting 100% unadulterated thoughts from an eight year old!

  1. Excellent review! I know a lot of kids who would love a book with both dinosaurs and soccer. :)

    1. Right? Dinosaurs, space, and soccer seems like the perfect kid trifecta.

  2. There are different sorts of dinosaurs which you can look over. Be that as it may, the greatest dealer these days is the compromising raptor.
