There's poop, presents and prehistoric creatures in this festive feast!

The story revolves around Danny - a very greedy boy who asks Father Christmas for too many presents. But Father Christmas decides enough is enough and instead gives Danny a huge Dinosaur which results in a very messy and smelly consequence. If your child liked Aliens in Underpants or The Story of the Little Mole, they will love this funny yet cautionary tale.

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.’
