This book is a collection of the three Danny and the dinosaur stories; Danny and the Dinosaur, Happy Birthday Danny and the Dinosaur!, and Danny and the Dinosaur Go To Camp.
The first story, Danny and the dinosaur, is 64 pages long (twice as long as the others). It starts one day when Danny decides to go to the museum where he meets a live dinosaur. Danny and the dinosaur then leave the museum and go exploring around town and have many adventures before it is time for the dinosaur to return to the museum. The second story, Happy Birthday Danny and the Dinosaur!, is 32 pages long. In it Danny goes back to the museum to invite the dinosaur to his birthday party. The dinosaur is glad to accept, and, as it turns out, today is his birthday too! The third story, Danny and the Dinosaur Go To Camp, is also 32 pages long. In this story Danny takes the dinosaur with him to summer camp. Of course they have unusual adventures. This story tells about their first day at camp.
All of the stories have some wording trouble. In places the wording is awkward and some of the conversations are hardly believable. Each story however improves on the previous one in this sense however, and the last one flows reasonably well.
The drawings change slightly from story to story. The dinosaurs in the first and last stories are slightly different from each other and definitely different from the ones in the middle, even though it is all supposed to be the same dinosaur. The colors certainly make the drawings stand out, but to me they also make it look harsh. I my prefer the style of coloring that was done in the original 1958 version of Danny and the Dinosaur. Other than that the illustrations are great.
In short, this is a fun collection of three good stories about a boy with his friend dinosaur.

This is actually 3 stories in one book. I grew up reading this to my brother (also named Danny) and I now read it to my 2 year old. It's still a little too complicated for him, but he enjoys seeing the dinosaur and making "roars" when we see him.

We still have our 35-year-old copy of Danny and the Dinosaur, which my 2 1/2-year-old grandson loves and always wanted to take home with him. He loves his new treasury, because it's in color and there are three stories! Great purchase!
