The Dinosaur That Pooped the Past by Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter

The Lovereading4Kids comment

When they accidently go back through history on a time-travelling swing, Danny and Dinosaur meet some new dino friends. But soon there's a rumbling noise; it's a volcano about to erupt! Can Dinosaur save the day by pooping them back to the future?


The Dinosaur That Pooped the Past by Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter

Read along with Tom and Dougie as Danny and Dinosaur make history in their third adventure! Find out in this hysterical historical adventure from the creators of The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas, and The Dinosaur That Pooped A Planet.


We love the rhyming text, colourful illustrations and (of course) the smelly, explosive eruptions! The School Run blog

Happily the creators of this series have maintained their high standard and brought us another hilarious story... Wondrously inventive and fast-paced, this is another gem. Parents in Touch website


Scatological, or rather poopological, humour courtesy of that huge-bellied dinosaur delivered in rip-roaring rhyme and suitably exuberant illustrations; just the thing to send young children into fits of giggles, not to mention many of the adults who share it with them. -- Jillrbennett Red Riding Hub

About the Author

Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter

One of the World Book Day 2015 Authors Tom Fletcher loves Christmas and space, Dougie Poynter loves reptiles and they have a shared obsession with poop! After writing songs together for years in the band McFly, they wrote The Dinosaur That Pooped books in the same way that they write their song lyrics. Tom recently became a father to Buzz and by sharing stories hopes to pass on his love of reading to his son.

Tom and Dougie comment ‘The most important thing we have found with writing these books is we have to be having fun. Nothing good ever comes from being bored or when you start looking at projects as work. The Dino books for us are proof that you really can do ANYTHING as long as you have fun with it, you enjoy it and passionately love what you do! The best part of the job is seeing a genuine laugh from a child and their grinning parent as they get to the POO! bit for the very first time.’
