In this title Harry finds that he has to face the threat of school bullies and a local villain but he is able to deal with both these foes with a little help from his old friends who are able to come to his rescue.
With a longer text the reader finds out a little more about Harry including his friends and home life. This is an appealing adventure story in which all the rogues receive their just desserts.
An ideal read for children able to deal with short chapters and a suitable follow-on title for children who have grown up with Harry. The black and white illustrations in the book are a little weaker than the original Adrian Reynolds artwork which only appears as the cover illustration.
Just like Winnie the Witch, Bob the Man in the Moon and others, the authors have extended the range to continue the characters' adventures for the same audience growing up.
Here, Harry is a little older and has grown out of (mostly( his dinosaurs. The story is set in school and at home, with bullies making an appearance, a theft (to solve) and clubhouses. And of course. A new dinosaur.
I found this story needed a little explaining for my 5-year-old (maybe another year or two would have been better) - bullies are a familiar idea, but one plays with a lighter, which is now Harry meets a new (magic) dinosaur. There is talk of antiques. I needed to clarify along the way.
My son loved it though, he couldn't wait for the spinosaurus to come to life and help Harry.
Both plots are wrapped up neatly by the end, with the naughty characters learning a lesson and getting what they deserve.
Harry has a nice selection of friends who I'm sure will feature in future stories. One sad moment - it is made clear at the start *Chapter 5* that Harry's mum (always alone in the picture books) is a widow. I needed to talk about this for a few minutes before continuing.
The writing is suitable for a listener aged around 5-8, it worked for us over a few bedtimes. And we will be looking for more at the library!

I was recommended these books as my nearly 4 year old loves dinosaurs. It was for a much older child and I didn't even attempt reading it to him. Read morePublished on 16 Aug. 2013 by odpsharon
A bit meandery and dull, storyline is a bit lacking in imagination and the plot tie up could have done with some extra workPublished on 1 Aug. 2013 by S. R. Duggan
