“There’s a dinosaur in the park! I’ve seen him. He lives in the bushes where it’s dark.” Yes there really is a dinosaur in the park – but how?
A young boy spots a dinosaur lurking in the shadows of his favorite playground. At first shadowy and indistinct, the dinosaur gradually "comes to life" through the boy's imagination. After emerging as a whimsical, fun playmate, the dinosaur slowly fades back to its original form. Or does it? John Siow's evocative art and Rodney Martin's simply told tale are a celebration of imagination in a child's everyday world.
