The Little Dinosaur recreates a truthful and poignant story of a little dinosaur that lived millions of years ago in the land called Gondwana. It was cold, even in summer in Gwondana, and dark all day and night during winter. The little dinosaur moved in a herd to protect her from other meat-eating dinosaurs. But after she fell and hurt her leg and she struggled to keep up, and one day, by the river, the herd was forced to leave her behind, and she soon died. Over the years the little dinosaurs' bones were covered with mud and silt. The silt turned to stone, the bones dissolved, and minerals filled the spaces where the bones had been. The little dinosaur became a fossil. Cut to 1989, when the lower leg bone of the little dinosaur was discovered by palaeontologists on the Otway coast of Victoria in 1989. Then follow the story of the slow, painstaking work of scientists, artists and sculptors as they prepare the bone and piece together the clues that tell the tale of the little dinosaur who lived all those years ago. The Little Dinosaur combines dramatic narrative and science to tell a fascinating story that will appeal to children on many fronts.
