BUY THE BOOK

Two kids enter a world full of tiny dinosaurs in this new action-packed illustrated chapter book series.

Danny and Lin never say no to adventure, so when Danny’s spy camera captures a tiny dinosaur crashing into Lin’s helmet during her skateboarding tryouts they know they have to investigate. But even they weren't prepared for a secret laboratory filled with amazing inventions (including the Shrink-a-Fier and the Expand-o-matic 2) and astonishing discoveries (Triceratops are NOT fond of the color red!).

Who knew that tracking one tiny pterodactyl would open up such a giant world of adventure with the Microsaurs!?!

Follow that Tiny-Dactyl is the first book in Dustin Hansen's Microsaurs series. Don't miss the next in the series, Microsaurs: Tiny-Raptor Pack Attack.

Dustin Hansen

Dustin Hansen was raised in rural Utah where he spent many days hiking red rock canyons that once belonged to the dinosaurs. After studying art at Snow College, Dustin began working in the video game industry, where he has been following his passions of art and writing for more than 20 years. His book on the evolution of video games, Game On!: Video Game History from Pong and Pac-Man to Mario, Minecraft and More, was released in 2016. When not writing or making video games, Dustin can often be found hiking with his family in the same canyons he grew up in, with a sketchbook in his pocket, a new idea in his mind, and a well-stocked backpack over his shoulders.
