Ryan has just returned to Singapore after years abroad in the US. Feeling alone and out of place - and an easy target for the school bully - Ryan hates school... until he meets Mr Khoo, the eccentric science teacher. Mr Khoo brings a dinosaur hand puppet Rex to school, and Ryan soon discovers that Rex is not just an ordinary toy. Rex teleports Ryan back to the past, on a mission to find a missing bone.

Written by AMONster02, who was 11 when he wrote the book, Ryan and Rex contains interesting facts about dinosaurs. His mother (known only as Mum), a former journalist with The Straits Times and the BBC, helped edit the book.
