Author(s): Elaine Ouston
The animals in this book were first introduced by the author in her fantasy series. Many school teachers, librarians, and parents have requested books for younger children with stories and illustrations of the animals. One non-fiction picture book, featuring all of the animals from the fantasy series has been published. This is the first book in a series of picture books that will feature two of the animals interacting, as they would have in the wild. This one features the marsupial lion and the diprotodon. More than 50,000 years ago, Dippy the Diprotodon (di-prot-o-don) danced through the dense forest heading for his breakfast of fresh eucalyptus leaves. What he didn't know was that right behind him, stalking him, was a marsupial lion wanting to make Dippy his breakfast. Who will win this battle?
