The Lost World (Jurassic Park, #2)


“Oh, he went on one of his field trips,” Thorne said. “Very excited about it, before he went. I outfitted him myself – loaned hi my latest field pack. Everything he could ever want in yst forty-seven pounds. He liked it. Left last Monday, four days ago.”

“For where?”

I think we all can figure out where he went! 🙂

(page 56 in hardcover)


Introduction:  The late twentieth century has witnessed a remarkable growth in scientific interest in the subject of extinction.

Are you concerned about cloning and the genetic research scientists are working on? Who knows what they do behind closed doors!


The Lost World: Jurassic Park Junior Novelisation captures all the thrills and chills of The Lost World story – with heart-stopping suspense, hair-raising action, and illustrated with colour photographs from the film. Something has survived…In 1993, an ambitious entrepreneur named John Hammond spoke four words which ushered in a new era of motion picture excitement and set worldwide boxoffice records…”Welcome to Jurassic Park”. Now, a few years later, Hammond makes a startling confession to scientist Ian Malcolm: another island of dinosaurs exists…an island where dinosaurs have been living and breeding in the wild…the Lost World.
