Told exclusively through dramatic, lifelike illustrations, this wordless story is sure to spark curiosity from aspiring archaeologists as well as those looking for a good adventure yarn. While walking with his dog, a boy finds a cool-looking rock containing the fossil imprint of a fern - and is shocked to see the fern spring to life! Eager for more discoveries, the boy cracks open another rock, freeing a buzzing dragonfly. But what will happen when he finds a fossilised dinosaur footprint? To find out, pick up this this "exceptionally creative" (School Library Journal) follow-up to Bill Thomson's earlier book, Chalk.
