David and Lucy have a new dog from the rescue centre, but they don't know what he is called. They try to find out his real name by making all sorts of guesses, but to no avail.
Instead, their very excitable and inquisitive dog is more interested in leading them on a search for fossil and dinosaur bones!
This is an exciting adventure story that also happens to include some interesting educational facts about fossils. The pace is lively and funny, with lots of amusing guesses at the dog's name, which is, of course, revealed at the end.
Every page contains black-and-white drawings that illustrate the action perfectly. This is an ideal story for a new reader graduating from picture books to paperbacks.
