About the Book

An egg shaped rock appears after an avalanche. Several forest animals are curious. Lightning strikes the object, turning it into a real dinosaur egg. A tiny T-Rex hatches. The animals decide to call him Toby. They soon learn that he is an extinct Tyrannosaurs Rex. All goes well until humans become aware that a dinosaur exists. They try to capture Toby. But animal trickery keeps him safe. The story ends as lightning strikes another egg.

About the Author

I’m a retired teacher. While securing a future in education, in my heart there was always a passion to write. When my grandchildren were born I felt the urge to create stories. These writings resulted in a unique harmony involving my wife (who inspired) and my 86 year old mother-in-law (who illustrated). The three of us created several picture stories that will be passed on to future generations. I live in the west suburbs of Chicago. I love reading, gardening, working out, and seeing my grandchildren. Even though I'm retired, I still coach volleyball at the high school level. This and writing children's stories keeps me young.
