The Prehistoric Planet (Galaxy Zack)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Galaxy Zack blasts back to the past in this outer space chapter book adventure!
A baby pterosaur can’t find his way home, so it’s up to the Nebulon Navigators to return him to the Prehistoric Planet. And when Zack’s dad is invited on the journey, Zack finds a way to go along too! But as they blast off on the super shuttle, they hear a strange noise. Is it the pterosaur, crying for his mama? No, it’s...Zack’s dog, Luna, who has snuck onto the shuttle!
When the shuttle lands, Zack can't believe his eyes: The Prehistoric Planet is full of creatures that he’s only read about in books. Zack and the team of navigators head out in search of the pterosaur’s mother—and end up in the middle of an amazing adventure.

It sounded to Zack like the baby pterosaur was trying to answer the louder call. “We need to get our passenger out of the ship!” shouted Captain Zorflane. The Nebulon Navigators quickly rolled the cage out of the shuttle. Again a blast of wind swept through the jungle. Then came another ear-splitting shriek. KA-CAAAAW! KA-CAAAAW!

Across the valley he saw a huge waterfall, just like the one from his dream. Only this one was even bigger. “Wow!” Dad said. “That’s the biggest waterfall I’ve ever seen—on Earth or on Nebulon.” “And look at all the dinosaurs down at the bottom!” exclaimed Zack.
