Publisher Comments:

Come, then, and join the Great Basselope Expenditionary Force as it sets out to discover the secrets of the world's most elusive beast. In a story of adventure and revelations, Opus leads a reluctant crew of Great and Famous Discoverers in pursuit of the final descendants of an ancient, ferocious race. They trek deep into the forest behind their backyards and come face-to-slobbery-fanged-face with a real discovery: things are never exactly as we think.

In this new, vividly illustrated picture book, Berkely Breathed has written a ripsnorting adventure with heart, one that will be enjoyed by the entire family for years to come.

Review:

"The characters' traits, their images and expressions, and the small details in the scenes result in a whirlwind tour through the hilarious world of a clever cartoonist. The imagination of Berkely Breathed cannot be denied." Children's Literature
