Robert is in Texas with his family, they are doing some research on the American alligator. Robert loves this sort of thing though he is finding himself easily distracted by getting into trouble with his best friend Riley. Even though the focus of this trip is the alligator Robert is still excited about the fact he is in the same area where the ancient predator deinosuchus roamed. Once again Robert finds himself swept back in time and this time he comes face to face with the alligators brutal ancestor.

This is the second book in this series. It is proving to be such a fun read. It is simple text and the story moves along at a great pace. There is plenty facts about dinosaurs thrown in, I think this is a great format for this as the kids can relate to Robert’s fun nature and his excitement about dinosaurs. A great blend of fiction and fact.
