Harry and his beloved dinosaurs have a dental appointment and they are all very nervous—especially Tyrannosaurus, who has so many teeth. But with Harry’s reassurances and a magic button to make him grow big, Tyrannosaurus agrees to let Dr. Drake take a look. Funny, accessible illustrations and a gentle text help alleviate the fear of this very typical life-lesson.
