Ryan and Rex #1: Bone Hunt
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.
