Who Wrote The Perfect Dog

author & illustrator
Kevin O'Malley

A long time ago in a city far, far away (known as Baltimore), a space dinosaur was born. Kevin O’Malley and Patrick O’Brien dreamed up Captain Raptor and started creating books about his daring deeds. They received more fan mail for Captain Raptor and the Moon Mystery and Captain Raptor and the Space Pirates (Walker Children’s) than for any of their many, many other books. Ten years later they’re back at it, concocting impossible situations for Captain Raptor in the long-awaited third installment of the series.
