Monster Island

Jurassic Park meets Stranger Things in a story where the creatures are out of this world!

After following his mum to her top-secret new job, Bernie finds himself on a mysterious remote island inside the Bass Strait Triangle. The scientists working there call it Monster Island, and Bernie soon discovers why . . .

Here, extinct and mythical creatures are alive! But that’s not the only mystery. Why are there so many mushrooms? Where have the hostile black drones come from? Who controls them? And why are they spying on the creatures on the island?

Bernie and his new friend Ivy are determined to find out.

An action-packed adventure where dinosaurs roam, secrets are dangerous and drop bears really do exist!

Monster Island
