Spotlight & Giveaway: middle-grade Ryan Hutton Adventure Series by Matt Weiss

Today I'm spotlighting Matt Weiss' dino-sized fun middle-grade series...

A Day in the Park
(A Ryan Hutton Adventure #1)
By Matt Weiss
January 15, 2016

Ryan Hutton and his friends Jay and Casey venture out to Pratt’s Woods for extra credit in their science class. When Ryan stumbles over a rock in the trail, they unearth a mystery that will change the way they think about their town. As they try to identify what they’ve found, Ryan’s mind wanders to a time thousands of years in the past, when prehistoric animals roamed the land. His dreams and the search collide when a team of researchers join the hunt for ice age life. Together, they discover what’s buried in their own back yard.

Through the Quarry Window
(Ryan Hutton Adventure #2)
By Matt Weiss
July 24, 2017

After spending the summer working on his prehistoric find, Ryan Hutton is ready to search for more fossils. Joined by his sister Marie and friends Jay and Casey, they are invited to explore quarries left behind by tropical oceans that have long since dried up. Through it all, the team is challenged to navigate the success and failure of discovery on their own. Ancient life is waiting for them, but finding it is only the first step. Together they attempt to figure out what they’ve found and how it fits on the tree of life. They learn that hidden in the rock is the path to the Mesozoic’s greatest prize, dinosaurs.

Matt Weiss is a consulting geologist, instructor, and author residing in Chicago, Illinois, USA. He writes middle grade fiction with an emphasis on the natural world and discovering the past. His books weave fictional stories together with the use of real scientific methods. He is currently working on the Ryan Hutton series, where a group of middle schoolers venture out to find things left behind thousands (and even millions) of years ago.
