Supersaurs 1: Raptors of Paradise

Publisher: Bonnier Zaffre

Review

The year is 1932. Bea Kingsley has just arrived on a remote Indonesian island, made famous by the creatures that live in its jungle – the brightly coloured but potentially dangerous raptors of paradise. 

Bea isn’t convinced that the raptors are the only reason her grandmother wanted to visit the island, and she soon discovers a possible connection to the disappearance of her parents when she was just an infant. 

Once in the jungle, it becomes clear that the dinosaurs aren’t the only threat to Bea’s life – and that ruthless humans can be just as deadly. 

Intriguingly set in a world where dinosaurs co-exist with humans, this is the first in a six-book series of classic adventure stories with a twist. Dynamic black-and-white illustrations bring the dinosaurs to life and add to the tension of a dramatic, historical thriller.
