Get into the Spirit of Christmas! A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month October 2016 Celebrity Dad of the Year 2016, Tom Fletcher brings Christmas and Dinosaurs together in a warm hearted, rollickingly magical story inspired by his love of both. Young William Trundle loves dinosaurs better than anything else in the world and all he wants for Christmas is a dinosaur – a real one if at all possible. William and his dad love Christmas too especially this year when things have not been going too well. Waking up on Christmas Eve William finds the amazing Christmasaurus in his bedroom, and is soon off on a dazzling adventure full of snow and elves and flying reindeer and Santa Claus himself. Packed full of warmth, this is a story that will delight all readers and especially those who love Christmas. ~ Julia Eccleshare

The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher
The Christmasaurus is a story about a boy named William Trundle, and a dinosaur, the Christmasaurus. It's about how they meet one Christmas Eve and have a magical adventure. It's about friendship and families, sleigh bells and Santa, singing elves and flying reindeer, music and magic. It's about discovering your heart's true desire, and learning that the impossible might just be possible ...
The magical first children's novel from Tom Fletcher, lead singer of McFly and McBusted. Warm, engaging, funny, and packed with memorable characters and Christmas magic, The Christmasaurus is the perfect stocking filler for both girls and boys. It's ideal for reading alone or together as a family, and will be enjoyed for many Christmases to come.
