Princess Dinosaur is a born leader. Sometimes she is too much for Cowboy Gus and Blue Feather. But Bettina Esmerelda Louise loves to play dress-up with her, and all the toys are mesmerized by her storytelling.

Suddenly Spots bounds in and snaps up Princess Dinosaur in his jaws! Down the stairs and out of the house he dashes, with the Princess between his teeth. And then he drops her--in a hole.

What will Princess Dinosaur do? Can she dig her way out? Will she survive the wilds of the outdoors? Can she get back to her friends?
