Do you love DINOSAURS? Do you wish you could actually meet one? Well, this is a story about a young boy who was lucky enough to do just that...and it changed his life...
Ronan is dealing with a crisis. He and his parents have just moved into an old mansion to look after his Grandmother who requires assistance. Ronan is very introverted and anxious about anything new and even refuses to venture into the overgrown garden.
Everything changes when he makes an unexpected friend - a dinosaur. Scoot introduces the young boy to new experiences, new adventures, and new friends (including an Archaeopteryx) and helps him gain some self confidence. However all good things must come to an end...and more change and upheaval are on the way...

Childhood anxiety is a lot more common that we realize. Dealing with it can be stressful to both children and the adults who care for them. This Middle Grade chapter book shows that help can come from the most surprising of places, and all you really need is FAMILY and FRIENDSHIP to overcome your problems.

GOODREADS Review (Julia Keizer)

The concept of anxiety and facing fears is excellently portrayed. Young Ronan has moved to a new place because his parents have to look after his grandmother. In this new and strange home is a fantastic garden waiting for a child to explore the area. His first fear he must overcome is facing the unknown in the overgrown garden. Once he becomes comfortable in his new play area, with a little help from his mom, a strange creature makes itself known to Ronan and many adventures await.

Through many different obstacles Ronan learns to defeat his fears. He learns that change is OK and is needed sometimes but if you remember the good times then the bad is much easier to overcome.

This book would be excellent for parents wanting to help a child overcome some anxieties at a young age. The author understand anxiety and that it isn't just something that you can say "Hey, I'm scared for a silly reason, and I just have to get over it" It takes time and patience and sometimes help from others around you.

It is based in Sri Lanka, and gives it a majestic feel. It would be good for any child going through anxiety and fears and would be something they would want to reread. Small children could relate easily and they would be able to understand the simple language used.
