The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas
We're delighted to announce The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas as our December picture book of the month written by [wait for it] Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher from McFly.
Here's what they had to say to Mumsnetters:
Dougie's fascinated by reptiles, Tom loves Christmas, and they have a shared obsession with poop! So 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. They said: "We absolutely love children's fiction. We constantly come up with ridiculous ideas and can't quite believe that this one's becoming a reality."
The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas is a story of just what happens when a baby dinosaur's appetite runs away with itself and just what he has to do to return Christmas back where it belongs…but possibly not quite as clean and pristine as before. This is a modern Christmas classic with a strong moral about the dangers of being greedy and truly appreciating the value of Christmas.
Q&A with Dougie and Tom from McFly
Fancy talking to McFly? We're inviting you to send in your questions to Dougie and Tom before the end of Sunday 9 December and we'll be selecting 10 questions and sending them over to Dougie and Tom to answer. Their answers will be published on the discussion thread on Monday 17 December - and if your question is answered you will receive your own signed copy of The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas.
