Hmmmm...., hurm....,

Um, I guess "wait until the publication comes out"? :-)

In brief: lots of dinosaurs, a few non-dinosaurs, how to dig and prepare
dinosaurs, and more.  However, absolutely NO instructions on cloning your
own dinosaur: that is proprietary information of JPI and their owners, InGen

And "toot, toot" [= tooting my own horn], another forthcoming book for the
The Little Giant Book of Dinosaurs, text by me, illustrations by Terry Riley
(i.e., don't blame me for the art...).  One of the first dinosaur book for
the 9-12 year old crowd organized on cladistic lines.
