A good adventure book for young boys. Reading level is probably 3rd grade or so, but younger kids will like it read aloud. Jack Stalwart is a 9-year old secret agent. He's sent to New York City to find the whereabouts of a missing allosaurus bone and ends up having to keep a marauding dinosaur from destroying the city. Jack comes equipped with a special flying skateboard, goo gel, and other high tech gadgets to assist him in the adventure. Best of all, his magic map lets him to do all this and still arrive back home only one minute after he left! His parents never need to know.

Adventure fiction, read aloud to young elementary school aged kids, self-reading probably 3rd grade and up. Will mostly appeal to boys.
