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, “Tyrannosaurus!” “Stegosaurus!”. 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”.
