Overview

“An exciting tale of dino discovery” (Kirkus Reviews), New York Times bestselling author Toni Buzzeo tells the true story of Sue Hendrickson’s historic find in the picture book When Sue Found Sue, illustrated by Diana Sudyka.

From a very young age, Sue Hendrickson was meant to find things: lost coins, perfume bottles, even hidden treasure. Her endless curiosity eventually led to her career in diving and paleontology, where she would continue to find things big and small.

In 1990, at a dig in South Dakota, Sue made her biggest discovery to date: Sue the T. rex, the largest and most complete T. rex skeleton ever unearthed. Named in Sue’s honor, Sue the T. rex would be placed on permanent exhibition at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.

When Sue Found Sue inspires readers to take a closer look at the world around them and to never lose their brave, adventurous spirits.

“Buzzeo’s considerable storytelling skills zero in on fascinating details, such as the experience of unearthing fossils, while Sudyka’s entrancing illustrations reflect this attention to detail and the passion Sue brought to her work. Additionally, it’s refreshing to see a profile of a modern, female scientist, who is respected in her field.” —Booklist (Starred Review)
