“…If it’s anything like the last (In Memory of Gorfman T. Frog), it’s worth discovering.”—Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production
How do you help others if you can’t help yourself?
Finch has trouble paying attention in school. He’s just too busy dreaming about uncovering a dinosaur fossil and naming a new species after himself–until he digs up a note in the fifth-grade class garden with the word HELP on it. He is determined to come to the aid of the mystery note-writer. But when the quest turns out to be harder than expected, Finch risks losing two things that he really wants—his best friend Noah and a field trip to Dinosaur State Park.
Acclaimed author Gail Donovan gets inside the hearts and minds of fifth graders on this journey told with unexpected humor and impressive insight.
