Fossil by Bill Thomson

Bill Thomson is back with another brilliant wordless picture book.  In Fossil a boy and his dog are near a lake where they discover a rock.  This rock is not just any rock but rather a fossil of an ancient plant that comes to life.  The boy breaks open two more rocks and two more come to life.  Things change from amazement to fear when one of those fossils takes the boy's dog for a ride.The boy must figure out a way to save his dog. A great wordless picture book (like his other book Chalk) for older students to enjoy.

Illustrations:  5 Buckeye leaves
