When Jack Horner was a child, nothing fascinated him more than fossils--dinosaur fossils to be exact. He hunted for them at every chance he had, and dreamed of becoming a great paleontologist. But school was hard, reading was even harder, and he struggled to succeed like the other kids in his classes due to severe dyslexia. Forced to find his own way to success, Jack persevered becoming one of the world's most famous paleontologist and immortalized in Hollywood films.

"An inspiring example of how disabilities don't have to close doors to scientific careers or other dreams."

School Library Journal 

"This picture book biography of world-renowned paleontologist Jack Horner not only details Horner’s passion to discover and study dinosaurs, but also encourages children to persevere when they face challenges...this title will be grabbed off the shelf for recreational reading alone."
