Thrilling new all-action environmental adventure for readers aged 8+

Two boys and a microraptor. A dark, mysterious forest. And a squad of army-trained mercenaries searching for them. What could possibly go wrong?

We love the sound of this thrilling new series by debut author Philip Kavvadias. It combines high-octane adventure, science fiction, humour - and dinosaurs! Packed with illustrations, this one is perfect for reluctant readers.


Falling behind their classmates on a school trip to the Alps, Finn and Milo stumble upon an egg buried in ice.

Later that night it hatches and a 65-million-year-old baby is born: Arty is a microraptor brought back from extinction.

But keeping her safe proves harder. Wicked scientists will do anything to get their hands on her, and soon Finn and Milo must run for their lives …

Philp Kavvadias grew up in Athens, fell in love in Dublin and built a home in Windsor. He writes constantly: stories, screenplays, sketches, poems. As an engineer, he works in sustainability for one of the biggest brands in the world, and as a Scout leader, he takes kids on real-life adventures. But most of all, Philip loves dinner with his family and snuggling for a movie.
