About this book

The Great Dodo Comeback
The Great Dodo Comeback

Dodos have been extinct for over 300 years. But what if they could be given another chance at life? Just imagine that! Leni loves birds. So when two scientists arrive on her island home to try to de-extinct the dodo, she jumps at the chance to help. But Benny Shoober, the Sugar King, hates birds and loves growing sugar. He’s determined that the dodo will be a no-show…
