Kazuma Saitou of toyonaka had a special
dream. His favorite books to read from
the library were always those about
dinosaurs, but he wanted to learn a lot
more about them. As he was thinking
about this, a beautiful white unicorn
appeared at his bedroom window.
To his surprise, the unicorn spoke,
'Kazuma, I want to take you to the Land
of the Dinosaurs. Can you come with
me?'' Kazuma said, ''Wow! I would love to
go, but first I must ask permission and
leave a note for Sak,iSyuusuke and Kazuki.''
Moments later, the unicorn
whisked Kazuma back in time to the Land of
|when Kazuma and the unicorn arrived at|
the shore of the beautiful lake, an
apatosaurus (uh-pat-o-SORE-us) greeted
them. He was longer than a big school
bus. "What is your name?" asked Kazuma,
I don't have one answered the
plant-eating dinosaur sadly. "No one
has ever named any of us." Kazuma
thought for a while and then said, "I
will call you Stretch.''
''Look at that mountain over there! "
shouted Kazuma, pointing off into the
distance. ''Is it on fire?'' he asked.
Oh no, that's just a volcano, replied
the unicorn. "Look all around you.
The Land of the Dinosaurs is filled
with many, many volcanoes, swamps and
fern jungles.'' Kazuma added, ''It's also
While exploring, they met a stegosaurus
(steg-uh-SORE-us). ''He sure does have
a lot of sharp points on his back,"
whispered Kazuma. ''Those are called
plates,'' said the unicorn. ''A
stegosaurus uses them for protection.
They also trap heat from the sun to
help keep them warm.'' Kazuma told the
stegosaurus, ''A great name for you
would be Spike.''
Next, Kazuma and the unicorn entered a
Not far away, they met an allosaurus
Kazuma was having so much fun in the Land
of the Dinosaurs that he had not
noticed that his friend the unicorn was
crying. ''Why are you crying?" asked
Kazuma. ''You have given names to
everyone today except me,'' sighed the
unicorn. ''Oh, I'm sorry. Ariel would
be the perfect name for you,'' said
Kazuma. ''I love it!'' smiled the
wide-eyed unicorn with a big grin.
''Thank you! ''
As they were talking, a tiny
compsognathus (komp-sog-NAY-thus) ,
about the size of a cat, raced past
them and said, ''You must follow me.
There is something you will want to
see." Kazuma and Ariel chased after him.
'Wow! He is as fast as lightning.
That's a great name for him,'' shouted
Kazuma as he ran.
They ran and ran until they came to
some rugged, rocky cliffs. Lightning
showed Kazuma a nest along the top of one
of the cliffs and directed him to get a
close look. The nest contained three
baby pterodactyls (ter-uh-DAK-tuls).
''Who is supposed to be taking care of
these babies?" asked Kazuma.
''I am!'' echoed a voice, circling above
them. Just then a large pterodactyl
glided past them. Kazuma found it hard
to believe that a lizard could fly.
Its wing span was about as long as his
arm. Kazuma decided that Dack would be a
fine name for a flying lizard. The
father pterodactyl glided down to the
nest. Ariel was quietly talking to
Dack, but Kazuma could not hear what they
Kazuma, Ariel and the pterodactyl flew
back across the Land of the Dinosaurs
until they once more reached the
beautiful lake. This time Kazuma saw a
lot of activity at the water's edge.
Dinosaurs were decorating the beach
with streamers and balloons. Kazuma
wanted to help decorate and wondered if
he could go to the party.
As they landed, a pentaceratops
(pen-tuh-SARE-uh-tops) rushed to greet
them. Kazuma quickly counted the five
horns on his head and decided to call
him Penti. Then he asked if he could
help them decorate. ''I want you to
come with me, but for a different
reason,'' replied Penti. "We have a
surprise for you!''
The dinosaurs were gathered around a
large two-tiered cake. ''What a
beautiful cake! '' exclaimed Kazuma.
''It's for you!'' shouted his new friends. Now
Kazuma knew what Ariel had whispered to
Dack. The dinosaurs realized that Kazuma.
had to return soon and had wanted to
help him remember his first Visit to
the Land of the Dinosaurs.
After the party, Alli, the allosaurus,
told Kazuma that it was time to leave for
toyonaka. Kazuma was a bit sad, but
could hardly wait to tell Sak,iSyuusuke and Kazuki
about his exciting
adventures. Before he left, they all
thanked Kazuma for the nice names he had
Ariel flew Kazuma home and said, ''I also
