Was very disappointed with this as the dinosaurs in the bucket were not the dinosaurs in the book. The idea of having the bucket of dinosaurs was a good one but surely they should have matched.

This turned out to be a mini book which isn't clear in the description.

I was thrilled when I saw that a collection of Harry stories had been published. My son loves Harry and the dinosaurs and we had borrowed Harry and the robots from the library so to find five in one book was a real bonus. The pictures are bright the dinosaurs are charming, the stories are simple and easy to follow. My son always selects this one to read by himself and laughs out loud especially when the dinosaurs are hiding. We have bought this now for lots of birthday parties and it is always very much appreciated. Great for 2-5's.

After my 2 year old discovered Harry and his bucket full of dinosaurs on playhouse Disney. He was Dinosaur mad, with the exception to the carnivores that looked scary and had angry faces. So when I saw this for sale on Amazon I was really excited. With all the reviews that had glowing praise for them, I decided to get them for him for his ever increasing collection of dinosaurs and books.
Well they came and I was disappointed. The dinosaurs are something you can get from a cheap store for no more than £2 and a bucket for £1. My little lad loves them but it wasn't what I wanted for him. If you are looking for something that resembles Harry's dinosaurs don't get these, they are not based on the characters, they are just a random models in a bucket.
The book it self is fine but in reality you've paid twice the amount the book is worth.
Hope this helps

The book looks wonderful and there is a nice story but what really makes this a wonderful gift is the bucketful of dinosaurs that comes with it. It is the same bucket and dinosaurs that are in the book. I am really looking forward to seeing my cousins face when I give him this present.

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.

The book is nice, and my daughter loves it after reading it from the library - but the bucket has the wrong dinosaurs in, which is pretty poor.

The back of the box says:

"Inside this pack you'll find a mini hardback of the bestselling book as well as 6 raaah-tastic dinosaurs to play with.

The ideal gift for all dinosaur fans!"

... but not for all Harry and the Dinosaurs fans. The books make a lot of the dinosaur names - especially this first book - including having a page with the pictures of all 7 of Harry's dinosaurs, with pronunciation guides for their names, 4 times in every book. In this bucket, there are 6 dinosaurs, at least one of which is wrong - Styracosaurus not Triceratops - and Pterodactyl is not there at all.
