Z. Raptor by Steve Cole- ADVISABLE

Cole, Steve. Z. Raptor, 240 pgs.  Penguin Young Readers, 2011.  $16.99.   Adam goes to spend Christmas with his father and finds that his father has created a video game that uses a person’s thoughts to control the characters thoughts and actions.  Unfortunately, scientists have stolen his father’s technology and created dinosaurs with human abilities.  Adam and his father are left to fight against the dinosaurs and for the rights of inmates on a deserted island.  I really liked how the Raptors were genetically changed to have the human’s ability to think.  It was interesting to see how the author came up with this plot.  It was an entertaining and exciting book.  EL, MS.  ADVISABLE.  Student Reviewer: ML- age 12.
