Spiffing show old chum: Captain Raptor and the Moon Mystery by Kevin O'Malley, illustrateed by Patrick O'Brien
New York: Walker Books, 2005
A space opera in which dinosaurs are intelligent and the aliens are human. Captain Raptor goes out to meet the aliens, prevents bloodshed and helps find their lost drive. There is honour and glory and stiff upercuts. There are also different specieis of dinosaurs happily conversing with each other (and vegetarians serve with carnivores)/
The whole is brilliantly illustrated as a comic book and if it weren't it would be a thin thing. I confess to enjoying it rather a lot.
