Harry and the Dinosaurs: A Monster Surprise!

A fabulous easy reader from the magical world of Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs! These days, Harry thinks he’s too old for his dinos – but they have other ideas. He looked after them when he was little, and now they mean to stick with him for life. And Harry isn’t the only one who’s got a lot bigger! So when Harry goes on a kayaking trip and spots a thief taking precious birds’ eggs, he has to do something. Can Harry’s dinosaurs make the thief wish they’d just stayed home?
