Ravenous, carnivorous dinosaurs going to town on a group of terrified humans may seem like odd fodder for a children'd picture book, but Pakoto Martinez makes his Jurassic Park scenes adorable—even when the characters are on the verge of death.

Martinez has a few more of these illustrations on his blog. And, if you like the contrast between horror of the subject matter and his appealing style, it's worth scrolling through the rest of his art blog. I'd love to see these done as a larger series—and see how Martinez would visually tackle raptor attacks and torn off arms.
