Having spent much of his life teaching English and drama, Ian Whybrow is now a bestselling author. Among his most popular characters are the hugely successful Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs and the much-loved Little Wolf. Ian lives in Harrow, Middlesex. Adrian Reynolds is a hugely talented illustrator who has worked on many picture books, including the wonderful Harry stories and four adventures featuring Pete and Polo. Adrian lives in Cambridge.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-Harry's big sister has a homework assignment to research the Romans, so the family makes a trip to the museum, with Harry's bucket of toy dinosaurs in tow. Naturally the boy gets lost, but he is discovered by Grandma in the Prehistoric Hall showing his dinosaurs their forebears. This English import may be a little confusing to American children whose history does not include a Roman invasion, but the mention of Egyptian and caveman "ancestors" generalizes the history lesson. Reynolds's watercolors convey a range of expression and attitude among the characters, especially Harry's dinosaurs, which have a tendency to come to life when no one is looking. The full-page illustrations are colorful and dynamic, and add depth and back story. When Harry gets lost, he is silhouetted in a doorway, dwarfed by a huge T. rex in a shadowy room. Every child will know just how he feels. Endpapers include names and pronunciations for Harry's collection.-Jane Barrer, Washington Square Village Creative Steps, New York City
