A breakout book from Crichton award-winning author/illustrator Sara Acton, with every-kid appeal and DINOSAURS.
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 latch onto the dinosaur facts.
- The artwork in this story tells a different story from the text, which allows readers to discover an alternative narrative that enriches the story.
- This is a breakout book for author/illustrator Sara Acton, whose debut picture book Ben & Duck earned her the Crichton Award, which recognises promising new Australian illustrators and has also been awarded to internationally-celebrated illustrators including Shaun Tan, Freya Blackwood, Anna Walker, and Marc Martin.
