The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas

| December 3, 2012 | 114 Comments

This book is a winner!

It has everything to amuse and engage a little one and also the inner child in you.  My six year old was in fits of laughter and total disbelief as I read him this book.  You really can’t go wrong when you combine a dinosaur, Santa and poop!  The underlying story however is great and reminds children to be grateful for what they have and not to be too greedy … just fabulous and I can HIGHLY recommend this book.

I am off to order a couple of copies right now from Mighty Ape (usually $18.99 but currently on special for just $15.99) …. click here to order

A bit more about the book and author

Danny wants everything for Christmas. But what he gets is a dinosaur, a very hungry dinosaur. Danny’s new dino eats up all of Christmas, but as we all know, what goes in must come out…Danny is about to have the most EXPLOSIVE Christmas of his life! There’s poop, presents and prehistoric creatures in this festive feast!

Author Biography

Dougie Poynter is fascinated by reptiles, Tom Fletcher loves Christmas, and they have a shared obsession with poop! After writing songs together for nine years in the band McFly, they wrote this book in the same way that they write their song lyrics. This is their first book for children. Garry Parsons studied Fine Art at Brighton College and after that he went on to study Illustration. He is a talented new illustrator, whose work has captured the imaginations of children all over the UK. Billy’s Bucket (written by Kes Gray) won the 2004 Children’s Book Award.
