Dinopoo by Ciaran Murtagh

Caveboy Charlie Flint has come up with a wonderful new invention - a loo for dinosaurs. Their poo is washed away underground, and so they get rid of a rather smelly problem. But the giant millipedes who live down there aren't very happy. They keep treading in dinopoo - and when you have as many legs as they do, that's a lot of treading! Charlie soon finds himself pitted against the fearsome king of the millipedes and in a very sticky situation!


Ciaran is one of the funniest people I know.

- Daily Telegraph on Ciaran Murtagh A fast-moving, fun adventure [with] hilarious drawings.

- The Scotsman on Ciaran's children's comedy show Full of clever word play and silly jokes. The kids love it and I really rather enjoyed it too.
