Format: Hardcover
This book is great. Lovely crisp and clear pictures, good story and a natural history/human evolution lesson in disguise.
Mum, Nan and Harry and big sister Sam go to the museum because Sam needs to research the Romans for homework. Harry takes his bucket of dinosaurs (including a new pterodactyl). They see cavemen, mummies and Romans. Then Harry wanders off and finds the dinosaur skeletons: Wow! Harry, the dinosaurs and my children are all wide-eyed. Plus there's a smashing illustration in the museum café of Triceratops playing a caveman, pterodactyl a legionnaire and T Rex a mummy.
My children and I love all the Harry books and this one is everything you'd hope for. I do think that the 'Harry and the bucketful of dinosaurs' series is a slightly acquired taste, a taste that's very definitely worth acquiring. I wasn't hooked the first time I picked one up because there is a little low-level misbehaviour such as the brother-sister squabbling. However, the more of the series you read the more you enjoy each one exactly because of this: Harry is so real in a pretty normal family (Mum & Nan - there's no Dad in evidence). My children certainly appreciate this. They love it when Harry squirts the hose at sister Sam in this story, for example, before being sent to 'settle down'. Definitely worth adding to your child's book collection

We bought most of Harry and the Dinosaurs books for my son, a few years ago, but now my daughter is so into them and loves them, just a much as my son.
A great read all round, for kids and parents.

There was actually nothing wrong with this book apart from the fact that it was paper back, I ordered and paid for HARD back, I tried to resolve this with Amazon but got nowhere, as it was a Christmas present for my great grandson I eventually gave up I think your customer service needs a bit of a shake up..

Fantastic seriers of books. They cover all the different experiences children go through, so can prepare children for something they are going to do. Lovely for children 3+. I bought this as a present for a 6 year old and he loved it, so works for a range of ages. 5 stars

Both my sons love Harry and the dinosaurs, and this book is no exception. As always, the story is well written, entertaining and engaging and the illustrations are great. Along with Harry makes a Splash, this is one of my favourite Harry and The Dinosaurs books

This is a fun book for children aged 3-6. My son is four and thoroughly enjoys the Harry books. He particularly enjoyed this one as he loves visiting the Natural History Museum.

My son and I loved the original story so decided to buy a few other titles. I felt it was very poor and a little bit of a money spinner. However, we would recommend "Harry & the Dionsaurs go to school", much better by comparison.
