As part of a weeklong online festival celebrating dinosaurs, their prehistoric past, and the science that brings their world back to life, we're bringing you Story Time with the award-winning author Michael Smith.

Michael Smith will read his book Thomas the T. rex, the story of nine-year-old Thomas and his cousin Rita who embark on a journey to Montana for a fossil hunting and study expedition with the Junior Scientist Club of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. Thomas discovers a 66-million-year-old dinosaur nicknamed Thomas one of the five most complete T. rex skeletons in the world.
