Elaine has created a great start to what promises to be a fantastic series set in Queensland. She has used her knowledge of palaeontology to create a great paced read. It felt similar to Richard Newsome’s “Billionaire’s Curse” and will be a hit with kids 9 and older.
I loved the setting, the use of good science mixed with magic (can’t get enough of magic really can we?) and the genuine ‘healthy’ storyline – there are good guys/bad guys without too much angst or misery, and the book rockets along dragging you through the Valley and beyond.
Oh and did I mention dinosaurs? Yeah, them too!
