Timothy Dinoman is on the trail of a stolen satellite!

To learn what these suspected supervillains want with outer-space tech, the world’s nicest iguanodon will visit a mountain fortress, a giant blimp, and a diner with excellent pancakes. On the way, he’ll even meet a really cute cat. Grab your rocket boots and your fake mustache—it’s time to crack the case with Timothy!

Don’t miss all the adventures of Timothy Dinoman: super spy, iguanodon, and good friend with good manners. Whenever master criminals threaten the planet, Timothy jet-packs to the rescue.
