DIPPY THE DANCING DIPROTODON
Book one in the Meet The Megafauna series.
Author: Elaine Ouston. Illustrator: Kevin Burgemeestre.
This is the first book in a series of picture books that will feature two of the megafauna interacting, as they would have in the wild. This one features the marsupial lion and the diprotodon.
The unique and hardly known megafauna in this book were first introduced by the author in her fantasy series The Mystery of Nida Valley.
More than 50,000 years ago, Dippy the diprotodon (di-prot-o-don) danced through the dense forest heading for his breakfast of fresh eucalyptus leaves.
What he didn't know was that right behind him, stalking him, was a marsupial lion wanting to make Dippy his breakfast. Who will win this battle?
The books are available through Morris Publishing Australia, bookshops through Dennis Jones and Associates, and all library suppliers. Release date: August 2016.
