Bluebonnet at Dinosaur Valley State Park

from Pelican Publishing

With curiosity as her guide, Bluebonnet, the most travelled armadillo in Texas, leaves her home in the Hill Country for a visit to Dinosaur Valley State Park.

At the park, Bluebonnet’s adventure begins when she decides to explore what looks like a burrow in the ground. Inside the burrow, much to Bluebonnet’s surprise, she discovers Spike the glyptodon, a prehistoric relative of the armadillo. Spike has been asleep for many years and is sad when Bluebonnet informs him that all of the dinosaurs are gone and that only their tracks remain in Dinosaur Valley State Park. As the two explore the park together, they are unaware of the fact that Spike is leaving fresh dinosaur tracks, and that the tracks have been discovered by people! Can Bluebonnet keep the visitors from finding Spike, the last known living dinosaur?

With colorful illustrations and a popular little hero, author Mary Brooke Casad teaches children about armadillos and their ancestors, mixed with a dash of Texas history.
