Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs by Ian Whybrow, illus. by Adrian Reynolds, Harry finds a dusty box of toy dinosaurs in Gran's attic. He cleans them, fixes them up and calls each by name: Scelidosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops and more. Humorous illustrations show the dinosaurs coming to life for Harry in this charming story, originally published in 1999 under the title Sammy and the Dinosaurs. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
While Harry was helping Gran clean the attic he found a box of dinosaurs. He lovingly mended and bathed them before placing them in a bucket. After all, dinosaurs like buckets, not boxes! Harry took the bucketful of dinosaurs to the library where he learned their names. They were safe because Harry knew their names: scelidosaurus, stegosaurus, triceratops, apatosaurus, anchisaurus, and tyrannosaurus. The dinosaurs whispered their thanks so only Harry could hear. The bucket went everywhere with Harry, even to bed. But one day when Harry went on the train with Gran, he was so excited that the dinosaurs were left behind. Harry then needed to prove to the Lost and Found Man that the dinosaurs were his. Colorful illustrations are filled with humor and delightful expressions. Be sure to follow the antics of the dinosaurs as they bathe, watch television, and go to the beach. Young dinosaur fans will surely enjoy this engaging tale. 2003, Random House, Ages 4 to 8.
