While Martin takes on summer work to feed Rufus, he finds himself in over his head when he can't keep up with the ever growing appetite of his pet dinosaur. Even with the help of his new friend, Audrey, Martin can't keep his secret hidden. Together they race to keep Rufus from ending up as a freak side show in the town's theme park but in doing so, will Martin have to give up the pet he has come to love?
In his debut novel, Fulk keeps the reader laughing while tugging at the heartstrings in his coming of age tale. Any boy who has ever loved his pet won't be able to put the book down until he finds out what happens to Rufus. A delightful take on an age-old dilemma of love and loss.
