By Yasuko Kimura
When one of Mrs. Hen’s eggs rolls away from its nest and down a hole, little Pakkun the Wolf dashes after it. The hole, however, is no ordinary hole in the ground—it leads both the egg and Pakkun to the Land of Dinosaurs. Astounded but undaunted, Pakkun soon makes friends with pint-sized Ptera. Together they search the vast sea, sky, and land for Mrs. Hen’s egg. Along the way, the two encounter friendly and not-so-friendly prehistoric creatures of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Following the good advice of a friendly Saurapod, Pakkun and Ptera find themselves in the Valley of Dinosaur Eggs. What happens next will amaze and delight readers just as it does Pakkun and Ptera.
