Wrinkle in time 70s cover 1050x700

Enjoy this week's book reading, from A Wrinkle in Time, the first book in Madeleine L'Engle's classic Time Quintet....It is a dark and stormy night when a strange visitor comes to the Murry house and beckons Meg, her brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin O'Keefe on a most dangerous and extraordinary adventure—one that will threaten their lives and our universe....
Meanwhile, for the budding paleontologists in the family,  we bring you the Australotitan cooperensi, a long-necked sauropod and one of the largest known land-dwelling animals to have ever existed. Australotitan is estimated to have reached a height of 5 to 6.5 meters at the hip and length of 25 to 30 meters – as long as two buses. It may have weighed anywhere between 23 and 74 tons, the equivalent of 1400 red kangaroos. The fossilized skeleton was originally nicknamed ‘Cooper’ after the nearby Cooper Creek where it was first discovered by the Mackenzie property owners and excavated with Queensland Museum in 2007. Finding ‘Cooper’ has changed the lives of the Mackenzie family and has led to the establishment of the Eromanga Natural History Museum.
