Publisher's Summary

It's scrap day on the ranch, and Hank is looking forward to a delicious feast of juicy, fatty bacon scraps. But just as Little Alfred is doling out the goods, two very unusual-looking creatures fly overhead, and what was promising to be a glorious day takes a dramatic turn for the worse. Suddenly the scraps have vanished, and the Head of Ranch Security finds himself dealing with an invasion by a couple of ancient dinosaur birds! Can Hank get to the bottom of this latest mystery...before it's too late? Hank and Drover sing "Why Does a Pelican Look So Bizarre?" and Rip and Snort belt out "Cannibal Trash" in this hilarious adventure for the whole family.

Hot dog! Don't miss out on any of Hank the Cowdog's adventures.

Hilarious!

I thought this book was excellent, but my children missed the point completely. It was partly the strong American southern accent of the performer, or maybe the humour was just above their heads as one has to read between the lines of what Hank the Dog is saying.

We loved it!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Case of the Dinosaur Birds to be better than the print version?

Nothing ever replaces the written word...but we LOVE AUDIBLES!!!

What about John R. Erickson’s performance did you like?

His ability to do all the voices ...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Always
