IN THIS SCIENCE-INFORMED FOLLOWUP to Ankylosaur Attack, (2012 Canadian Children’s Book Centre Winner for “Best Books for Kids & Teens”) Daniel Loxton tells a dramatic paleofiction tale of perhaps the largest flying animal ever to exist—the mighty pterosaur Quetzalcoatlus. While stalking a riverside for breakfast, the giraffe-sized pterosaur finds himself on the menu for a pack of small but ravenous feathered Velociraptor-like dinosaurs called Saurornitholestes. Can the giant escape from his Lilliputian assailants?
Inspired by real-world fossil discoveries, this photorealistic adventure (Book 2 in the Kids Can Press series Tales of Prehistoric Life) will delight and astonish.

Praise for Pterosaur Trouble
[A] riveting picture book…visually stunning…intriguing and original…an imaginative, scientifically based gem…
—Jurors, Victoria Book Prizes
Pterosaur Trouble is a terrific example of how to make a popular book on prehistoric animals both exciting and scientifically sound, an accolade that is all the more remarkable when you consider that a part of its targeted demographic is still learning to read.
—paleontologist Mark Witton (author of Pterosaurs: Natural History, Evolution, Anatomy)
Pterosaur Trouble is a well-written, wonderfully illustrated, and entertaining story that younger readers will enjoy both reading and having read to them. Highly Recommended.
—CM: Canadian Review of Materials, The Manitoba Library Association
