Product Description

Harry thinks he’s too old for his bucketful of dinosaurs – but they have other ideas! He looked after them when he was little, and now they’re determined to stick by him… for life. And Harry isn’t the only one who’s got a lot bigger! When a mysterious set of plastic dinosaur cards appears on his keyring, Harry soon discovers that with just a rub of his finger, he can call up an army of MONSTER-sized muscle! So when Harry hears that Mr Oakley has been robbed by a nasty crook, he resolves to solve the crime. And after a night visit from a spinosaurus, Harry realises that he has a whole pocketful of dinosaur backup!

Ian Whybrow is the best-selling author of over 100 children’s books, and is best known for his much-loved Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs books. He is now published in 27 languages in 28 countries!

Before he took up writing full time, Ian spent most of his working life in secondary education, mostly as Head of English and Drama and later as Head of Sixth Form.

Ian’s books are full of inventive and original humour and always writes with adult readers as well as youngsters in mind. “I loved being read to as a child,” he says. “And I loved the sense that my mother and father were enjoying themselves too. For me, that’s the acid test for any good book -that there’s something in it for everyone to enjoy.’

Apart from his wife and daughters, his passions – in no particular order – are: Herefordshire, where he retreats to write in a deeply rural Victorian villa; digging; walking with friends; swimming; cycling (especially in France); the poet Stevie Smith; the theatre; books, films and hedgehogs.

    Great fun, it would be cool to be able to call on massive dinosaurs when you needed some help.

    I do talk a lot about cousin’s on this but my cousin loves dinosaurs books and nearly read everyone but he loved this.

    When I first saw this book I thought it would be babyish and boring but when I read it, it turned out to be great.

    I liked this book because I like the GOGOs (Grand Order of the Great Oak), they are a gang of boys including Harry and his friends.

    My favourite person is Harry. I like the part when the GOGOs stopped the red van man. Harry and the Dinosaurs Roar to the Rescue is full of adventure. It would be a good book for children who liked Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs when they were younger but also good for boys who like dinosaurs and adventures.
