This book is about a boy and a girl named Horrible Harry and Song lee. They were fighting about which dinosaur was better so then Harry said that his dinosaur was better so that hurt Song Lee’s feelings. Then Song lee was not talking to Harry for a long time. One day Harry had Song lee’s crayon then he tried to talk to Lee because he had her crayon. Lee was still mad so she did not want to talk to Harry. Then Lee came up with this Idea that they would have a kick ball game. So they were choosing which person would go on which team. Harry’s team lost then his team became so mad they did not even want to be in his team again.

I think that the story was weird cause they were fighting over which dinosaur was better. If you read the story you really got to understand how the story would go. Also I think that this story was kind of interesting because they are not changing anything they keep on talking about who dinosaur was better. And both of the dinosaurs that they made were good because Harry had this dinosaur that looked like a real one and Lee hade this dinosaur that it looked like the Chinese dragon.

I recommend this book to people who are competitive because the people fight for the wrong reasons. Also the book is kind of cool because it has dinosaurs in it. This book could be for all people because they could like it and could inspire them to write a book just like this. Also if you want to find out that if Harry and Lee were still friends read this book.
