Audiobook adventure fiction novel for 8-to-12 year-olds. Trygg and Alta are two dinosaurs who should never be friends. Trygg is small, fast, and he eats meat. Alta is big, slow, and she eats plants. To survive, they cannot be seen together. Their story is 76 million-years-old. The action is fast paced. The threatened friendship is unforgettable. Dramatic narration brings their story to life.
Paula Louise Salvador, writer and narrator, created this story based on the real dinosaurs she filmed as a science documentary film maker. Paula actually held the fossils of "Trygg" and "Alta" in her hands, and she never forgot the tiny legs curled up inside the egg and the little skull that looked like it was smiling up at her.
QUILL & QUIRE Review "With the lovability of 'The Land Before Time' and the accuracy of an encyclopedia, 'Trygg the Dinosaur' is an immersive tale set in the Western … region over 76 million years ago… of two young dinosaurs… Trygg is an immediately lovable underdog and his companion Alta is a loyal friend who risks being punished as a traitor while trying to help others. Even in a world so far removed from our own, we can see ourselves in the friendship, and the need to belong." Reviewer: Nicole Abi-Najem Nov. 2019
