Review

In this title, farmer Oakley’s birthday provides the perfect excuse for a party to celebrate more than just his own old age.

Dinosaurs are a perennial favourite of picture books, but here we are reminded why Harry’s bucketful have been so successful. Like unfettered children they are into everything: jumping and racing and snacking on treats, they make lots of noise, drive the tractor, squirt water at each other and at the birthday party they even get to jump in the jelly!

A sense of family, community and domestic pre-school life (confirmed in Reynolds' engagingly robust illustrations) provide broad appeal in this witty, utterly engaging classic.
