REPEATING FROM AUG. 16:

 BIGGER THAN 'JURASSIC PARK';
 DOUGAL DIXON'S DINOSAURS RULE THE EARTH
 HONESDALE, Pa., Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park" might have conquered the silver screen, but Dougal Dixon's dinosaurs are about to overrun the entire planet.
 In an unprecedented children's book publishing event, the full- color, 160-page "Dougal Dixon's Dinosaurs" will be released worldwide in 10 different languages in 19 countries:
 Chinese (Hong Kong, People's Republic of China, Taiwan);
 Dutch (Belgium, The Netherlands);
 English (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States);
 German (Austria, Germany, Switzerland);
 French;
 Italian;
 Japanese;
 Malaysian;
 Norwegian;
 Swedish.
 And whereas movie-goers see only seven different dinosaur species, readers of Dougal Dixon's work will experience more than 25 of the prehistoric creatures, up close and personal.
 According to Don Lessem, dinosaur consultant to Spielberg during the filming of the movie, "A new wave of dinomania is cresting with 'Jurassic Park.' But most dinosaurs didn't make it into the movie. And many dinosaur-loving children can't see the PG-13 film. For all kids, 'Dougal Dixon's Dinosaurs' provides a vivid, sweeping insight into dinosaurs and dinosaur science that goes far beyond the confines of 'Jurassic Park.'"
 Boyds Mills Press, owner of the world rights to "Dougal Dixon's Dinosaurs," will release the American/Canadian edition this month.
