About Chicken Frank, Dinosaur!


In this quirky tale with a STEM foundation, Chicken Frank wants to convince his doubting barnyard friends that he is a dinosaur. Cluckity-roar!  But when results of a DNA test inspire Frank to hold a reunion with toothy distant relatives, will Frank become a tasty chicken nugget?

Chicken Frank, Dinosaur! offers a perfect blend of humor and information in its exploration of evolution, extinction, and scientific debate. Wrapped up with a surprise, yet satisfying, ending, Chicken Frank and his barnyard pals discover friendship and family can be found in unexpected places.

Can Chicken Frank prove he's related to a T.rex?

Chicken Frank wants to prove he's related to a T.rex--because of evolution --but none of the other farm animals believe him, until he gets his DNA test results. This comic-book style picture book combines information with humor to explore the concept of evolution and the connection between birds and dinosaurs.
