Dazzling Dinosaurs

Written by Maureen Sudlow and narrated by Rob Griffiths and the Bedtime FM Team

The boys had a day off school. It was raining so they ended up at the library, with nothing much to do. Boredom was sinking in until Zach knocked over a pile of dinosaur books. Suddenly the pages were empty, people were flitting at the air with their hands and hiding under tables. What on earth was going on, and where had the dinosaurs disappeared to?!

Don't ever let anyone try to tell you libraries are boring places!

The author dedicates this story to the Dargaville librarians of Northland, New Zealand.

A short story suitable for young children aged 3–8 years old.
