Return to the Dinosaur Planet (The Young Scientifics) by Cousin Summers

The Young Scientifics... An Exciting Middle Grade Series PETER BAKER has a dream of being the youngest boy scientist by producing his own documentary show called Dinosaur Planet (and getting famous). Which shouldn't be hard because his parents are dinosaur hunters, and he's been working on dinosaur digs ever since he can remember.      But his plans get ruined when his father takes a job at a museum and his mother leaves for Africa. Now, he will not get to work on a dinosaur dig this summer, and must keep an eye on his younger sister every day, too.     Then he meets Casey Tucker, and his zoologist aunt. Here is a boy whose responsibility is to entertain a monkey from NASA (vacationing at the zoo) for several hours a day. But Casey's secret mission is to search for a legendary scientist that went missing years before, while working on a classified space project. At first, it's only fun and games. But it isn't long before the friends discover... How dangerous some games really are.

Cousin Summers (the Mysterious) has been writing stories up in a lighthouse on Summers Island for longer than anyone can remember. But it doesn't matter that no one remembers when all that started. The important thing is the lighthouse is where they all come from. You might be wondering where the mysterious part comes in. It is because Cousin Summers is a shy person (and busy, too), who spends so much time writing stories up in the lighthouse that a lot of rumors have started. Which is all we need to say about that, because we know where rumors come from. Sometimes there's a little truth to them, too. Either way, you will have to decide for yourself.

What is known for certain is that Cousin Summers (the Mysterious) does not mind sharing the island with readers who find their way there. Oh, yes, and you will occasionally see Miss Lilly there (the light housekeeper who only does light housework). She can answer questions you might have about Cousin Summers, but you have to be polite. Then there's the Captain, who has lived long enough to know something about everything. He talks to anyone who will listen, whether they are polite or not. There are others on the island, too. But that's enough for now.

Here is what I thought......
This book was a lot of fun. I got it for my daughter who enjoys dinosaurs. She was very much intrigued by the book. I actually read the book with her and I was very interested in it too. it has some mystery which I really enjoyed. The story was fun and exciting and the writing was done very well. This book was a lot of fun to read and I'm sure we will be getting book two. Thank you to TBCN and the author for the opportunity to review this book. A positive review was not required.
