Sally and Max love dinosaurs. They can’t wait to see them at the museum, but today the dinosaur exhibition is closed. Where will the dinosaurs go on their day off? A whimsical story with humour and heart from author and award-winning illustrator Sara Acton.
Dinosaur Day Out is that ideal picture book you could give as a present to any child. You can read it to a two year old, who will point to all of the dinosaurs, or to an older child who will read a bit more into it.
This is a breakout book for author/illustrator Sara Acton, whose debut picture book Ben & Duck earned her a Crichton Award. She’s a tremendous local talent with the potential to have a much larger profile.
Sydney residents will recognise local landmarks, but the book isn’t so Sydney-centric that it will distance other readers.
