Excerpt

CHAPTER 1

Toby T-rex and his animal friends had journeyed deep into a forest where humans rarely traveled. The farther away they hid themselves, the better chance Toby had of not being discovered.

Toby had grown to the size of a bear. A year had gone by since the forest animals saw him hatch from his ancient dinosaur egg. Lightning had struck his egg, magically changing it from a stone in to the real thing.

Darcy Duck surveyed the forest above the trees. "All is clear!" she quacked as she landed amongst her forest friends. "There are no humans anywhere."

Levi Lynx returned from the forest. "No sign of wolves. Things are quiet."

"I like quiet," croaked Tobias Toad. "It's so nice to relax amongst friends."

"Boring!" complained Willis Weasel. "I need more excitement."

"But we play games," said Tobias. "We play hide and seek and branch toss."

"That's dull," yawned Willis. "I need something that's more invigorating."

Toby couldn't speak the animal language, but he understood the weasel's complaint. Playfully, he picked up Willis and began playing catch with him.

"Yikes!" hollered Willis. "Put me down, Toby! Noooo! Stop!"

"Throw him into the water!" shouted Scully Squirrel. "That would be really invigorating."

Toby gave a mighty swing and tossed Willis high into the air ... KERSPLASH!

The animals giggled; they wanted Toby to hurl Willis again. But a screeching sound interrupted their amusement. The noise they heard was similar to Toby's shriek. But it wasn't Toby.

"Seems we have a visitor nearby," said Myrna Muskrat.

"And the visitor seems to sound just like Toby," piped in the squirrel.

The cry filled the forest again, even louder. Toby raced toward the sound.

"TOBY!" growled Bertha Bear. "Come back here!" Toby knew by Bertha's tone that he should obey.

"We go together, and we walk cautiously," said the bear. "Levi, go ahead of us. Sniff things out. But don't get too close."

Levi ran ahead while the rest of the group walked warily toward the sound. But the sound soon became a whimper. And then the forest became quiet.

A few minutes later Levi returned with a report. "Wolves! Four of them! They're in a clearing just ahead. There's something on the ground."

"What is it?" asked Scully. "What did you see?"

"I don't know," said Levi. "But the wolves are curious. And they're drooling."

"It might be an animal friend needing our help," growled Bertha. "Let's run!"
