Sooo… let’s ignore that awful title for now…

Raptors! The Nastiest Dinosaurs written by Don Lessem and illustrated by… Dave Peters?!? (The information at the back of the book gives no indication if it is that Dave Peters.) Published in 1996 by Little, Brown and Company.

Man, this book is frustrating. The maniraptors throughout the book – and this is especially remarkable when you read the introduction and find that the whole impetus is “Jurassic Park” – are exhaustively researched and anatomically accurate, rather than the usual “F. it; let’s just copy ‘Jurassic Park’ again” approach.

And they are buck naked. *sigh…*
