This is a great Harry And The Dinosaurs book, which my two-year-old loves. However, the Kindle version suffers from Kindleitis - that is each leaf is an image, presented as a single page on the Kindle. Normally that's fine but for books such as these that have two-page spreads means you're constantly flipping back and forward to read text and look at the pictures.

If you or your children like Harry then it's a great read; but buy the physical book, NOT the Kindle version.

Another great Harry and the Dinosaurs offering. Harry must go and play with a little girl who he is sure won't be any fun and won't share his enthusiasm for his mesozoic friends. How wrong can he be...This book teaches children not to pre-judge people or situations and to try and have fun. My two little dino fans loved the simple story and brilliant illustrations and really entered into the spirit of the book.I would recommend it to anyone who has young children who love a good story with a happy ending. ENDOSAURUS.

This is a great story with lovely crisp clear pictures. Harry is taken to play at Charlie's house but he is worried about sharing his dinosaurs with her. Charlie however entices him out into the garden by creating a primordial forest which looks like a lot of fun to the dinosaurs. But snake (the garden hose) catches Tyrannosaurus so Harry, Charlie and the dinosaurs perform a daring rescue. This is an imaginative story and an inspiration to children and parents playing out in a muddy garden.

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 sticks his tongue out at big sister Sam in the car, for example. Fantastic!

This is another great `Harry' book. Not to be confused with the great Mr Potter, this Harry is busy learning about life with his favourite dinosaur toys. I really enjoyed reading Harry and the Dinosaurs with my daughter and this one continues the pleasure. In the first story Harry discovers a bucketful of dinosaurs and is astonished when they come to life, running away from him and getting up to mischief. I love the fact that (as an adult at least) you can see that this could be Harry's imagination as he plays with his toys and sees them as real and alive when in fact they are not.

In this story Harry has to deal with visiting a place he is not sure about and possibly having to share his beloved dinosaurs. This is so resonant of conversations we have had at home about both visiting and sharing and the concerns that children can have about it. It is great that Harry overcomes his reservations through imaginative play with his dinosaurs and his friend.

All the books we have read in this series show how the dinosaurs help Harry with various situations he finds himself in, coupled with the colourful and attractive drawings they make lovely books to just read, or to talk about.

Verdict: An enjoyable story to make your little one think without even thinking about it!
