Good kid's book which is detail enough for adult browsing

7/31/03 B.B. Calhoun's book not only gives an opportunity to compare eastern state New York with mountainous Wyoming..but throws in info re dinosaurs,dialogue on attitudes of "the 6th grade group" and despite an illustration on the jacket of various time zones(Pharoahs(King Tut, and Pharoah Thutmose II's stepmother,"the woman pharoah:Hatshepsut),superheoes(Eon),dinosaurs(e.g.:deinonychus,zephyrosaurus),..and Dr Gideon Mantell(British doctor ,who 1n 1822 first identified the teeth of the dinosaur iguanodon)[main character,Fenton Rumplemayer(whose parents are paleontologists) 'costumes' to be Gideon Mantell at the Firehouse's halloween party) ..not for a minute with dialogue like "you guys","actually","cool","oh well"(pg in the pun on 'Oh well(it's a deep subject)',.."mention of the racing movie "Wild Wheels",..Wyoming's Fairpoint Mall & its costume/stationary store "Card Castle" would the juvenile reader not consider it a "modern reader" book.
