The little dinosaur, Talon, has strayed too far from her pack. Suddenly, the ground shudders and with a thunderous blast the great volcano bursts to life. The rest of the pack run for their lives, but Talon is forced to run in the opposite direction and finds herself alone. Outside the safety of the pack Talon is terrified and has little chance of catching any decent food. Before long she is weak with hunger. Then Talon hears a familiar noise, the cries of her own kind. But it is an enemy pack! Tentatively, she watches and then for days follows at a distance. Will they accept her into the fold and ensure her survival? Paul Geraghty worked closely with Dr. Norman MacLeod of the Natural History Museum, one of the world's most renowned dinosaur experts, on the crafting of this text. The result is an accurate portrayal of dinosaurs of the lower cretaceous period combined with an exciting storyline and breathtaking illustrations. Praise for Paul Geraghty: "Paul Geraghty is an artist who never puts a foot wrong." - The Bookseller. "A book whose images - both visual and verbal - evoke awe and wonder at every turn of the page." - Books for Keeps on The Hunter.
"As always, Geraghty's wildlife illustrations offer a visual feast and will be looked at over and over again." - Literacy and Learning on The Hoppameleon.
