Lucinda Sage-Midgorden grew up in a family that shared stories of all kinds, from fairy tales to movies. Talking about the stories as a family became not only a fun pastime, but a great way to learn. Lucinda loved story telling so much, she got a BA, then a MA in theatre. She’s worked as an actor, stage manager, and director, taught English and drama in public school, and theatre classes at the local college. Telling the stories of other people was fun, but she longed to tell her own stories. For many years, she wrote only for herself and her family. Now she writes from the home she shares with her husband in Southern Arizona.

First, a disclaimer--I am related to the author and illustrator; so must confess to a wee bit of bias. However, Scottosaurus is a heart-warming story that speaks to everyone's desire to belong. Using an ever-popular theme of dinosaurs, the story will attract children who then relate to Scottosaurus's desire to find his own family. As a librarian I would say this is a book to be read to young children. But, also, more advanced readers will enjoy the book by reading it to other children or parents. The illustrations use vivid colors to enhance the story. And who can resist a pink dinosaur! The book is also available in print format. I hope this talented team will produce additional books that combine adventure and discovery of life's values along with lovely illustrations.
