It’s the first day of school! Harry is nervous because he isn’t sure what to expect. Triceratops is even more nervous, especially when Harry must leave the dinosaurs in the coatroom. But soon Harry sees another boy who is the most nervous of all. He clings to his toy bulldozer and won’t talk to anyone in the class. Harry wonders what he can do. Perhaps the new boy will talk to dinosaurs. . . .
