Tommy and his friends continue their adventure where Tommy Tale #6, Tommy Meets a Dinosaur, left off. When we last read about Tommy and his friends, they had been transported to a cave during the time of dinosaurs and were afraid of the large, hungry T-rex breathing into the cave. They had with them a little dinosaur friend named Don. In this tale, all of the friends, including Don, return home to the modern world. Don causes havoc, and the friends finally decide to send Don back to his own time and to his mother.
