Meet the Characters
Albert is a professional paleontologist hoping to extend his grant by completing exciting research into the lives of African chimpanzees. He has spent his career studying animals that are currently in existence in the world, but that doesn’t mean that he has no interest in the animals believed to have gone extinct thousands of years in the past.
This dinosaur adventure book picks up at an exciting point in Albert’s life. He is under a lot of
stress when he arrives in Africa for what might be the last phase of his chimpanzee research. He has hopes of extending his grant and continuing his research, but the prospects of that happening do not look promising.
Albert takes his well-trained dog and his son, Freddy, into Africa with him. While Freddy is not a trained paleontologist, Albert looks forward to spending time with his son and maybe teach him a few things about the importance of paleontology.
Freddy is your average boy growing up in the modern world. He loves his video games and
enjoys taking walks with his dog. When he arrives in Africa, he finds his new home anything but what he expected. His new home doesn’t have a television, Internet access or video game consoles. He looks out the window and doesn’t see what his father says he sees. He worries that he will have nothing to do and starts to miss his friends back home, but it doesn’t take long for him to discover the magic of Africa.
