Supersaurs: Raptors of Paradise

The World of Supersaurs: Raptors of Paradise book

Imagine a world where dinosaurs have survived… and evolved. Welcome to the world of Supersaurs!

About the book (9+)

Bea Kingsley lives in a world where humans live side by side with 'saurs' – a world in which her parents disappeared 11 years ago, when she was just a baby. So when Bunty, Bea's formidable grandmother, and Theodore, her godfather, suddenly decide on an exotic trip to the remote Indonesian islands of Aru, to see the elusive Raptors of Paradise, Bea starts asking questions. And the more questions she asks, the more trouble comes their way. What is saur trader Christian Hayter hiding? And who is the wild boy in the forest who keeps coming to their aid? Was the journey to the islands a dangerous mistake, or is it the beginning of the adventure of a lifetime?

The adventure starts here…

Supersaurs: Raptors of Paradise, Book 1 in the six-part series, is illustrated throughout with magnificent black-and-white artwork, brought to life by a free innovative augmented reality app (just search for Supersaurs in the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store).

About the author

Jay Jay Burridge Supersaurs

Jay Jay Burridge studied Fine Art Sculpture at Central Saint Martins and for his degree show he made a forty foot long, self-assembled dinosaur skeleton out of MDF. After graduating, he took over from the legendary Tony Hart, writing and co-presenting the BBC children's art show SMart. Jay then turned his attention to a career in commercial art for brands such as Sony, Adidas, and Levis; soon starting up his own custom-made deluxe trucker cap brand, Lucky Seven Caps.

In 2010, he returned to his favourite dinosaurs and exhibited his 'supersaurs' sculptures in a one-man show in Beverly Hills. The enormous 80,000 square-foot space was filled with 15 full-sized supersaurs. With Jamie Oliver, he co-created the pop-up 'Dinersaur Diner' in the heart of Piccadilly Circus. Jay lives in Oxfordshire with his family.
