This story starts, like all good stories, a long time ago. Not just a long time ago, a very, very, very long time ago. Squillions of years ago, in fact.
Full of innocent charm and humour, The Christmasaurus follows the adventures of a little boy named William Trundle who travels to that most magical home of Santa Claus, The North Pole, where he meets a dinosaur…
This is not the North Pole as you may have imagined it before: there are elves with names like Snozzletrump speaking entirely in rhyme, Santa has a vinyl-powered sleigh, and, most importantly, there is a dinosaur in residence: a dinosaur who wishes he was a reindeer.
This delightful tale is wonderfully told and will appeal to readers of all ages.
Tom Fletcher is a children's author, a YouTuber and one of the lead vocalists and guitarists for pop band, McFly; he was also the group's founder and is the principal songwriter. The Christmasaurus is his first solo writing project, he usually writes with Dougie Poynter and is best known for The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas.

I love this book! It is Christmassy, amazing and crumpety, all at once! It's a bit silly, and a lot funny, and there are poems and rhymes in each chapter that I loved reading out loud.' - Toby, aged 8
