The December Book Club choice is Kenneth Opel's book, "Every Hidden Thing". Selected as an Editor's Choice in "Inis", a reading guide published by Children's Books Ireland, it is a most interesting read. Borrow the book from the Library now. says of this book, "Somewhere in the Badlands, embedded deep in centuries-buried rock and sand, lies the skeleton of a massive dinosaur, larger than anything the late nineteenth-century world has ever seen. Some legends call it the Black Beauty, with its bones as black as ebony, but to seventeen-year-old Samuel Bolt, it’s the “rex,” the king dinosaur that could put him and his struggling, temperamental archaeologist father in the history books (and conveniently make his father forget he’s been kicked out of school), if they can just quarry it out."
