Within minutes, I knew this was a big mistake. What was the point? A class trip to the Alps, they had said, to enjoy beautiful views, they had said, to breathe fresh air and watch birds. Well, they could watch all the birds they liked (seriously, who does that?)without me. I had an advantage. I was last. So I could just sit on this rock here and they could pick me up on their way back. It was a good plan. No, it was an excellent plan. If it weren’t for Milo. You know how on school trips everyone pairs up really quickly and you’re left alone? Well, I do. And so does Milo, aka the Professor. So, our genius teachers always come up with the same genius solution. They pair us together. Give those teachers a coffee mug.

About the book

Two boys and a microraptor. A dark, mysterious forest. And a squad of army-trained mercenaries searching for them. What could possibly go wrong?

Later that night it hatches and a 65-million-year-old baby is born: Arty is a microraptor brought back from extinction.

But keeping her safe proves harder. Wicked scientists will do anything to get their hands on her, and soon Finn and Milo must run for their lives …
