Charlie Dinkwater is one of the least popular students in the seventh grade. Smart, small, and bookish, he is a frequent victim of bullies. That is until he mutates into a dinosaut. Apparently Charlie's great-grandmother was a mutant dinosaut who married a human, and Charlie is a throwback to her line. Not very comforting when you are a seven-foot tall lizard in seventh grade.

But Charlie discovers that being a dinosaur makes him an instant celebrity. His popularity rises to the point that he is considered for membership in the exclusive Banditos, the most popular boys in the school. But is he willing to betray his friends to become more popular?

A good, but not great, novel by actor, writer, producer Bob Balaban. Slapstick events will be popular with a certain reader, but not a struggling reading, it's too long. Grade 6 to 8.
