5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves its best-selling status, 26 Sep 2005
This review is from: Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs (Harry and the Dinosaurs) (Paperback)
This is a great story with lovely crisp clear pictures. Harry finds dinosaurs in Nan's attic and lovingly rehouses them in a bucket. He learns all their names and they become inseparable. He's very upset therefore to leave them on a train but is happily reunited at the end-osaurus. This is the beginning of the successful series of Harry and the dinosaur adventures, and my children and I love them all. 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 you read the book the more you enjoy it 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's breakfast bowl ends up on sister Sam's head in this story, for example, before he is sent to 'settle down'. Plus, from this book they're learning the different dinosaur species and how to pronounce their names. A must-have book for the 2-5s.
