“I went to a museum and they had this sideshow. There was a little boy who couldn't have been more than six. His feet didn't even touch the ground. Each time they showed a dinosaur he would shout, 'Tyrannosauras!' 'Stegosauras!'. He did that for an hour and I thought what is it about dinosaurs that's so fascinating? That's when I decided to write Jurassic Park.”
