Two young dinosaurs from opposite sides of the floodplain bump into each other by chance. He's a small meat-eater, and she's a big plant-eater. They've got no parents, no food, no friends. They're supposed to be enemies, but they decide to stick together instead. It's not easy. When she gets caught with him, she ends up banished from her herd. He faces a huge rival who could stomp him out with one back foot. They have to outsmart a gang of predators who have sharp teeth and long, curved claws. And they struggle to overcome drought, mudslides and a bubbling tar pit. Worst of all, when they lose contact with each other, they fear betrayal. What if their bond has been broken?

IndieReader RATING 4.8 out of 5

"Author Paula Louise Salvador and illustrator John Bindon earn top marks for creating an imaginative dinosaur story that will tug the hearts of children, parents, and teachers ... Together, they've created a lovable story ... Opposites attract in a bittersweet middle grades novel about orphaned dinosaurs -- one a tiny carnivore, the other a huge herbivore. Salvador deftly alternates Trygg's and Alta's early childhood tales of loss. This rhythm changes and the heavy emotions lighten when the two meet and become loyal, got-your-back swamp playmates. Salvador gives her characters human conversation, emotions, and personalities. Bindon's black-and-white illustrations capture these personality traits as well as realistic dinosaur anatomy." - Alicia Rudnecki for IndieReader
