Harry and the Dinosaurs: First Sleepover

Publisher: Puffin

Review

Mum and Nan are concerned about how Harry and his dinosaurs will handle a sleepover at Jack’s house – but their worries are unfounded.

Jack’s Dad shows them the bats in the attic, and Triceratops and Pterodactyl make friends with a robot and a Morris Minor. Even when bedtime comes, and Jack is anxious about tapping on the window (is it the bats?) he’s reassured by Jack’s Dad. ‘I like sleepovers,’ Harry whispered, ‘I’m going to do lots of them.’

The combination of dinosaurs and everyday life with its uncertainties and tiny fears are why these books work and this one is no exception. Harry – and his friendly, reassuring yet mildly adventurous dinosaurs – triumphs once again!
