A fabulous board book edition of this bestselling Harry picture book. In this charming story, Harry's dinosaurs are hiding all over the house, refusing to come out and jump in their bucket. Could it be because today's the day of Harry's visit to Mr Drake, the dentist? They're all scared he'll will do drilling on them - especially Tyrannosaurus. But when they finally get to the dentist, Harry and the dinosaurs have a special trick up their sleeve and it's Mr Drake who ends up scared...

The upshot was that when we next visited the dentist, little one was even more confident, and 'Raargh'ed even better than before!!
In summary; great story, superb pictures. Any Harry fan will love it. Buy it - you won't be disappointed.
Unfortunately, I have to agree with the earlier reviewer who noted that there is an element of the story which could be unsettling for a small child who has no reason to be afraid of the dentist. The the story portrays Harry as being scared of the dentist's drill and being reluctant to sit in the big chair. I did not pre-read this story before sitting down to read it to my son, and found myself wondering how I was going to extricate myself from the awkward situation that the mention of the drill had created.
It's a useful introduction ahead of going to the dentist, and helps the child to understand that the dentist is a friendly character.
The illustration is good, the story is great and it's definitely the best of the "Harry" stories.
