his dinosaurs and takes them to the library, where he learns
each of their names. Afterwards, the dinosaurs go everywhere
he does. But then one day after an exciting train ride, Harry
accidentally leaves them behind. Sad and lonely, Harry must
get his dinosaurs back, because to him they are more than just
toys, they're his friends.

The dinosaurs said, "Thank you, Harry."
They said it very quietly,
but just loud enough for Harry to hear.
