Mystery of the Lion’s Tail

  • Squaaawk!

    Ethan Briar woke up to a strange noise and glanced around, confused. Where was he? This wasn’t his room. The bed was covered with a gauzy gold canopy, not soccer-ball sheets. He didn’t recognize the tree growing in the middle of the room . . . or the lantern by his bed either.

    His gaze fell on the window. A giant bird perched on the sill opened its long, thin beak.


    Ethan let out a yell. He’d never seen such an enormous bird before—at least not up close!

    “What’s wrong?” Andrew Briar called out from the other bed. He fumbled around for his glasses.

    “Dad! There’s a pterodactyl in our window!” Ethan exclaimed.

    Mr. Briar slipped on his glasses. “Wow, it’s big! No wonder you thought it was from the age of the dinosaurs. I’m guessing it might be a hammer-headed stork. Or a sacred ibis. Wait. Let me look.”
