A madcap romp of a story, reminiscent of Dr Seuss, written by two members of the pop-band McFly, that features – you guessed it – a dinosaur and lots of poo.

Danny is a very greedy boy. Every year, he asks Father Christmas for too many presents. So this year, Father Christmas decides to teach him a lesson; he gives Danny a dinosaur.

The result is very large, very smelly and very, very funny.

“Expect this naughty rhyming story to be a seasonal favourite.” – The Bookseller.

Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher had written songs together for nine years, as members of McFly, before they decided to begin their The Dinosaur that Pooped series of children’s books, which have been a roaring (ahem) success.

Illustrator Gary Parsons studied Fine Art at Brighton College before going on to study illustration. He has since worked on Billy’s Bucket, which won the 2004 Children’s Book Award, Krong!, which won the Perth and Kinross Picture Book award 2006, and he has recently worked with Lucy and Stephen Hawking.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The puritan in me says this is not something we should encourage, surely, toilet humour doesn't have a place in children's literature, does it? Then I remember my children's favourite TV show from the 1980s, the wolves, who farted and belched and made everyone, including me and Wendy, have hysterics. Toilet humour is harmless, and when it involved dinosaurs, there's no harm done, is there? This will make you laugh, and the illustrations are terrific, so what can go wrong? I'll put the puritan in me back in the sideboard and save it for something more worthy. This is brilliant!" * Books Monthly *
"The book, which is very reminiscent of Dr Seuss . . . is a lovely life lesson and deliciously naughty toilet-humour that will have young readers squealing in delight" * Madhouse Family reviews *
