DESCRIPTION:“What in the world came out of that enormous egg? lt weighs 13,900 pounds! It measures 20 feet- and it’s not even full grown!
No wonder Nate Twitchell’s pet rocks his home town in New Hampshire and astounds the nation. ‘That creature is a Federal offense- Un-American,’ cried Senator Granderson. ‘It’s eating the U.S. Government out of house and home!’
When Nate hears the fate that is planned for his pet, he is desperate. How can he save it? How can he hide something that weighs more than six tons?

About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
