After Me, the Deluge was a big success, becoming an opera-rock written by the Italians Garinei & Giovannini ( Aggiungi un posto a tavola - Beyond the Rainbow) that is still represented in theaters worldwide. The Great Dinosaur Robbery became a Disney movie, One of Our Dinosaurs Is Missing (1975), which was also highly considered in its time. Despite that, all these books are currently out-of-print.
