Discover a world of prehistoric dinosaur adventure with Robert Irwin!
A camping adventure unlike any other!
Robert is out camping in the outback with his family and Riley. The boys can hear dingoes howling to one another, and they imagine what it might have been like to hear muttaburrasaurus calling to one another. The fossil takes him back to the mid-Cretaceous in the dead of night, where they experience firsthand the unusual call of the wild.
About the Author
Robert Irwin was born on December 1, 2003 and his abundance of energy at Australia Zoo is contagious!
At only eight years old, Robert is a chip off the old block, and with his cheeky grin and natural curiosity, he loves nothing more than catching lizards and skinks, learning about wildlife and the Australian bush, and hanging out with his much-adored sister, Bindi. Both Wildlife Warriors, Bindi and Robert received the ‘Biggest Greenies' award at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in 2009, dedicating it to their dad Steve and the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR) in Cape York. This was topped off by their induction into the “Hall of Slime” in 2011.
Every year Robert is stoked to be a part of the annual Australia Zoo croc research trip up in far north Queensland, helping the experienced croc team catching and tagging crocodiles with tracking devices before releasing them back into the wild. Robert is super keen to learn all he can about the natural behaviours and migratory patterns of these modern-day dinosaurs! Robert is keen to share his worldwide wildlife journeys, so much so that he stars on his own Australia Zoo TV channel ‘Robert's Real Life Adventures'.

My 4 year old son loves dinosaurs and enjoys this book and other dinosaur hunter books with Robert irwin a great deal. We usually take two nights to read one book together just before bed. Have read all books in series at least four times each. They're great!
