D-Bot Squad series by Mac Park

cover image

Ill. by James Hart. Allen and Unwin, 2017.
Deep dive. ISBN 9781760296025
Dinosaurs are back, and on the loose! It's up to D-Bot Squad to catch them. Hunter and his team dive deep under the sea to catch five kronosauruses. But soon they become the meat in a giant squid and krono sandwich...
Stack attack. ISBN 9781760296018
Hunter and Charlie have made the best double d-bot, to catch an argentinosaurus. But they have a new friend to save first!
There are 8 books in the series and they do not have to be read in order. The series will be a welcome addition to a library or added to the collection of take home readers. The love children have for dinosaurs is never ending and this series is no exception.
Marc Park cleverly uses words the children can read independently. They will certainly serve the purpose of getting even the most reluctant readers engaged. There are between 70-80 pages per book and the text is relatively large and with illustrations interspersed, so the books don't appear too daunting. With the added appeal of chapters the reader will see themselves as entering the next stage - the illusive chapter books!
