Dinosaur Cove Book List:
Each story in this series can stand on its own, but the books are numbered which often means that there will be some minor details that carry over from earlier to later books, such as a new character being introduced in a book and reappearing in a later book when the readers are expected to have already met him/her. It's probably best to read these books in order but it's not critical.
