My children love Harry and the dinosaurs. I am a dentist and I thought this one might be fun but I am disappointed that it talks about Harry being worried about the dentists drill. The majority of young children need no dental treatment other than checkups and when it is needed it needs careful and gentle introduction. I feel this book could put unnecessary anxiety into a child's mind about their dentist. There is a lovely book in the Usbourne First Experiences range which is much nicer.

Harry and his dinosaurs are off to the Dentist's but his big sister Sam has been showing him her filling and worrying him. Harry thinks Mr Drake might want to do drilling. Luckily there's a magic button on the bucket to make Tyrannosaurus grow big to have the first turn in the up-and-down chair before Harry and the rest of the dinosaurs bare their teeth. Raahh and then rinse. My children and I love all the Harry books and this one is a good one. 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 relate to Harry being slow about leaving the house, though actually Harry's very well-behaved in this story. This is a grat book to read prior to going to the dentist - much more fun that a 'visiting the dentist' type book and my children were more than happy to practise Jurassic wide-open mouths for brushing. Great!

This book was an excellent introduction to dentists. My son (3 years old) was terrified of going and would really create a fuss after reading the book he wanted to go just like Harry and the dinosuars. A really colourful book with lovely illustrations and very helpful with frightened children

My 3 year-old son has been enjoying the various adventures of Harry for some time now. I bought this book to prepare him for a family dental check-up. The story itself and the illustrations are up to Ian Whybrow's usual standards, with plenty of opportunities for my son to "Raaahh" and join in.

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.

We love the Harry books, and my (2 years 10 months) son is a huge fan. He has also always been perfectly happy about visiting the dentist so far. But this still really captured his imagination. I completely disagree with the previous reviewer who suggests it puts fear into children's minds. Quite the opposite; I think it addresses a potential fear before it gets out of hand. We had a great chat about how you MIGHT be scared of the dentist (like Harry's tyrannosaurus), but WE'RE not scared, are we, because we know that dentists are friendly and fun (like the dentist in the book).... you know the sort of thing.

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.

This was one of my son's favourites for quite a while and even now at 3 ½ he still likes a re-read.

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.
