In this eighth title in the "Wonder Wits" series, Luke and Sophie are trying to come up with an idea for an exhibit in the Clever Creators' Competition. If they win, their entry will be displayed at the local museum. But what is more important, it would give them a chance to show up their sneaky, cheating classmate, Nicolas Wilson. With the help of their neighbor, Mr. Costa, Luke and Sophie come up with an idea that just might win the prize: dinosaur fossils. The duo set out to learn more about the people behind the fossils, the "dinosaur creators" who figure out what dinosaurs look like. Readers will learn the basic process of dinosaur and fossil investigation while strengthening their reading skills with this brief chapter book. A mix of drawings, photos, questions, and trivia bring this intriguing subject to life. 2004, Picture Window, Ages 7 to 11.
