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