About the Author

Aaron Levenberg is a high school senior. He was born on January 3, 1992, in New York City right across the street from the American Museum of Natural History. As a child Aaron spent his after-school time at the Museum, which accounts for his great enthusiasm for dinosaurs. He now lives in suburban New Jersey with his parents, two sisters and his Siberian husky Shadow. Besides dinosaurs, Aaron’s interests include dogs, animal life in general, and television shows about dinosaurs such as “Dinosaur King.”
