Microsaurs: Tiny-Tricera Troubles

Microsaurs (Volume 6)

Dustin Hansen

Feiwel & Friends


A lab mix-up accidentally releases a full-sized Triceratops into the town festival in the sixth and final installment of Dustin Hansen's illustrated chapter book series, Microsaurs.

As the first official members of the International Microsaur Protection Agency, Danny and Lin thought that they were prepared for anything. They've flown with Tiny-Dactyls, herded Tiny-Stegos, and wrangled Tiny-saurus Rexes. But when the Professor's newly upgraded Expand-o-matic messes up, they end up facing their biggest problem yet... a full-sized Triceratops let loose in the middle of the town's yearly Tomato Festival!

Will Danny and Lin be able to stop their favorite Tiny-Tricera from terrorizing the town, or will the Microsaurs become front page news and be lost forever?



“What if you don’t like tomatoes? I mean, it’s not like this is the great cotton candy festival. Everyone likes cotton candy. I bet half the people on the planet...

Reviews from Goodreads

Dustin Hansen

Dustin Hansen, author of Game On! and the Microsaurs series, 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. 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.
