Mom, There's a Dinosaur in Beeson's Lake

Author:  Trudi Trueit
Publisher:  Aladdin
Pages:  145
Source:  Library
Genre:  Middle Grade Realistic Fiction

This was a cute book.  Scab is dying to go on a fishing trip with his uncle over the summer.  His parents insist he take a swim class.  The problem is he will be required to swim in the deep end of the pool.  This is something that absolutely terrifies him.  Deep water, diving, enchiladas are just a few things on his list of things he is afraid of.  When he and his friends go fishing, and the big one snaps his pole, he is sure he has seen a dinosaur in the Lake.  When his friends see the same thing they decide they must prove this.  But, how do you prove something like this when you are grounded?  This is a book that I think many kids will like because of the humor.

  1. Many thanks, Sandy, for the kind review. Lab Rat 3 will be out in April 2011 (and Scab gets into his worse pickle yet!).
