Return of the Dinosaurs

Author Bronwyn Houston

Publisher Magabala Books

Genre Australian picture book

A charming and vibrant children’s book that imagines what dinosaurs would do if they returned to the stunning shores of Broome.

A fun and dynamic look at what life would be like for dinosaurs if they were roaming the Broome coastline today! Reflecting the famous colours of north west Australia and its rugged environment, the textured collage layers of artwork capture the character and beauty of the dinosaurs, birds, and marine life that roamed the Kimberley coastline more than 130 million years ago.

For lower and middle primary school ages. Teacher’s notes available
