Following the adventures of Dinosaur Hideout and Dinosaur Breakout, twelve-year-old Daniel Bringham once again travels back to the time of dinosaurs to learn more about the prehistoric creatures he loves. This time he has an unexpected companion.

Daniel decides to travel to the past one more time. He wants to find out if a dying female dinosaur he saw on his last trip is Roxanne, the fossil he and Pederson found in Dinosaur Hideout. Daniel figures he'll be going alone, but he's figured without Pederson and his friend Mildred Roost, another paleontologist.

Mildred insists on coming with him. Daniel thinks it'll wreck everything -an old lady will just slow him down, and if she gets killed, he'll blame himself. But he's reckoned without a tough old bird with lots of tricks up her sleeve, tricks that could save both their lives.

Dinosaur Stakeout includes a glossary of names and technical terms and a book list kids can use to expand their knowledge of dinosaurs.

Judith Silverthorne is a multiple-award winning Regina-based writer. She is the author of seven Coteau novels for young readers, including: The Secret of Sentinel Rock, The Secret of the Stone House, Dinosaur Hideout, Dinosaur Breakout, Dinosaur Stakeout and Dinosaur Blackout.
