Overview

As a young doctor with a beautiful family and a promising medical career, Dr. Leonard McCoy thought he had it all. But when the woman he loved betrayed him, McCoy fled to Starfleet, hoping to lose his pain in the depths of space. Now, more than forty years later, the Enterprise

TM and her crew are ordered to transport a group of mediators to the planet Ssan, a world where assassination is a time-honored tradition, and McCoy is surprised to learn that his ex-wife, now remarried, is one of the mediators. And before he can come to terms with his conflicted feelings for his former love, she and Captain Kirk are trapped on Susan, and McCoy is caught in an explosive civil war, the only one with the power to save the woman who once nearly destroyed him.

After reading about dinosaurs and then falling asleep, Wilbur sees a baby apatosaurus outside his bedroom and travels backwards through time to return it to its Jurassic time period.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Talk about the odd couple: this sweetly written, captivating picture book limns the camaraderie between dinosaur enthusiast Wilbur (his red pj's sport a dinosaur silhouette) and Gideon, an escapee from the Jurassic period. When the baby dino comes calling after Wilbur falls asleep, the practical boy realizes the unsuitability of the situation and resolves to lead his visitor home--``Follow me, Gideon. . .we have one hundred forty million years to go through.'' In an appealing twist, the intrepid lad proves more courageous than the dinosaur: one of Nolan's ( Step into the Night ; Mockingbird Morning ) luminous watercolors depicts Wilbur trudging through a new snowfall, as a whining Gideon follows precisely in the cleared track. So deftly does the author build this relationship during their arduous journey that children--and adults as well--may blink back a tear when the two friends finally part. Wilbur is a model hero, without a hint of precocity in manner or appearance, and red-eyed Gideon ranks with the best of animal creations. No bones about it, this is a real charmer. Ages 4-7. (Oct.)
Children's Literature
This is the story of Wilbur, whose interest in dinosaurs and ages past becomes a part of his vivid imagination, as he takes a journey with Gideon, a brontosaurus, all the way back through time to the Jurassic Period. Along the way, they meet up with woolly mammoths in the Ice Age and a Mesohippus from the Tertiary Period, as well as a few other ancient creatures. This delightful story, with its soft-hued illustrations not only teaches young readers about dinosaurs and different periods in time, but it also provides adventure and excitement. Some readers might struggle with the amount of text and the difficult terms regarding the genus and species names of the dinosaurs and the names of the time periods. However, it is a great book to read aloud to children or along with them. 2000 (orig. 1990), Aladdin Paperbacks, and $5.99. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Sheree Van Vreede
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- There's too much highbrow hype and not enough good storytelling to make this book linger in readers' memories. Wilbur befriends Gideon, a baby dinosaur, in the middle of the night (or--is it only a dream? The trite plot gimmick doesn't help). The two of them travel back through time, exploring the Ice Age and the different eras of reptiles, until Gideon returns to the Jurassic period, where he belongs. Sure, this is a fantasy, so it's conceivable that Wilbur and Gideon could trek through the snows of the Ice Age, visiting woolly mammoths and saber-toothed tigers. But writing fiction doesn't excuse misinformation. Wilbur's statement, ``Soon we'll be out of the Ice Age and into the Age of Mammals,'' seems to exclude tigers and mammoths from Mammalia altogether. The painted illustrations, which at first look very attractive, work best when they stick to realism, such as a bird's-eye view looking down over the head of a Triceratops. But a closeup of Wilbur hugging Gideon, with glowing clouds in the background, is as cloying as sofa-sized painted sunsets. Try Dinosaur Bob and His Adventures with the Family Lazardo (Harper, 1988) by William Joyce for a better-realized story about a dinosaur compadre. --Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library

    For people who love Bones!

    I read this book exclusively because i heard it was about McCoy, because im a HUGE McCoy fan, and i was not dissapointed! I was a little dissapointed because of what happened to one of the characters at the end, i wont spoil it for anyone, but honestly, i think it makes it a better story, more like real life... if real life involved aliens and space doctors

    Very enjoyable.

    I loved this book. I have read it numerous times since I first found it many years ago. (The info says it was first published in 2002, but I remember reading it in high school in the 90's)(I've been using the "pen-name/screen name" of one of the characters since long before 2002). I thought the idea of a society that used sanctioned assasination to control it's population was a little far fetched at first, but the way that the idea is used made it interesting. This would be a good book for anyone who enjoys Star Trek or Sci-Fi in general. It's well worth picking up.

    McCoy Fans Must Read

    Just a great book! I love the way the author makes the added characters, mainly Jocelyn 'Sorry if that's spelled wrong' The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because of the story in the middle of the book when McCoy's just out of Starfleet. I just didn't like the way he made McCoy, I wouldn't see him making that mistake or getting mixed up in that sort of thing'You'll know what I'm talking about if you read it' But other than that, this is a awsome book. Really well written!

    Bones' background

    At first I thought this would be an okay book. However, this was actually an enjoyable read. Although it jumps to the past (to show Dr. Leonard McCoy's early days in Starfleet Medical and his mariage), these passages are well-written and easy to understand. The dialogue and actions of the command crew feel like true to the series and the motion pictures.
