"Microsaurs: Follow That Tiny-Dactyl," by Utah native Dustin Hansen, is an inventive, fun story about a pair of adventurous kids who discover a world of miniature dinosaurs.

It's a fast-moving tale from the moment a little orange flying creature takes off with the beacon from Danny's dad's GPS. Danny and his skateboarding best friend, Lin Song, go after the red-orange, birdlike dinosaur and end up chasing it to a garden full of tiny, prehistoric animals.

On the way, the two children shrink to the

My 8 yr old son and I read this together. He "really liked it a lot"(his words). I think it is a fun book and we both liked the illustrations as well. Looking forward to this coming summer.

My 9 yr old and 6 yr old are eating this book up! They love a lot of books but this chapter book is so great because the story is so fun and also has wonderful illustrations. We can't wait for the next one in July!!!

This review is from a bilingual 4th grade boy. He wants to continue reading the series, so he obviously likes it. He says its kind of funny, likes that it is about dinosaurs and enjoyed the illustrations. He said the story was just ok. I think the illustrations look awesome and that they compliment the story very well. It looks like a fast read, so good for struggling readers, for grades 2-5.

A promising start to this new transitional chapter book series - kids and dinosaurs are shrunk down micro size!

Obnoxious, inaccurate, with little or no research done on the dinosaur and pterosaur species this book features. Centered around a ridiculous theory about pre-historic archosaurs evolving to become tiny rather than going extinct. This book has no educational or entertainment value, and the art is ugly and cringeworthy and does nothing to boost the book’s already low excitement level.

I'll give it 3 stars because my 7 year old son really seemed to like it. I thought the illustrations were cute, and I liked the characters, but there wasn't much to the story considering how long it was, and I found the writing to be dry and boring. But hey, I read it for my kid, not for me, and he loves dinosaurs. He's looking forward to the next book.
