At the Aquarium Recue Centre



Caroline Fernandez

Shannon O'Toole


Moonie and I just want to enjoy our class trip to the Aquarium Rescue Centre, but Grandma has other plans.

When dust makes her sneeze and turn into different Mesozoic Era marine reptiles, it's up to us to track her down, stop her funny business, and make sure we still have time to finish our field trip reports!

The Adventures of Grandmasaurus is a series of laugh-out-loud picture books starring two gender diverse kids and their funny-business-loving grandma. Each book includes a section of dinosaur fun facts.
