My boys (3 and 5 ) love this book. Be warned - there is a lot of pooo! But the text is interesting and challenging enough and the rhymes great, although they do sound a little forced at times.
A great addition to our ever expanding book collection.

Recieved the book a few days ago but was a bit disappointed when the postman decided to fold the book in half and posted through the postbox! The book is creased as a result. Anyway, my dd enjoyed the book very much. She has been reading it again and again and each time it makes her laugh out loud. She now wants to to buy the other book. The book is very colourful with lots of large, cute pictures. The stoyline is funny and should appeal to both children and adults alike.

I gave this my nephew as he likes anything to do with space and dinosaurs, he loved this book and laughed from start to finish.
The pictures throughout the book were very colourful and added to the overall quality of the book. i shall look out for the christmas one as well.

My 2year old son absolutely loves this book - the rhymes and the pictures. The topic passes him by at the moment, other than the word poo, but am sure as he gets older he will love every aspect of the book. Mummy and Daddy, however, are not so keen on subject matter!

My sons, 6 and 3, absolutely love this book. After the initial hesitation from my 6yr old on saying the word 'poop' out loud there was no stopping the giggles and sniggers when reading the book. They have always prefered rhyming books (although I did find some of them tongue twisters) and loved the pictures. In unison they do the countdown of the rocket and both do an action when the 'ninja chop' is read. Will have to get the 'christmas' book now.

Dinosaurs and poo sound fun - I've just reserved the book from the library.

My 3 loved this book. The illustrations are detailed and held all their attentions ( ds 6, ds 8 and dd10). They all read a page each - made easy because of the rhyme structure and loved it. DS 6 took it to school for Friday show and tell, all his class mates thought it was hilarious. We have put an order in for the previous book. Its not to gross for Mums and Dads either!

This made us laugh so much, especially the mars cat at the end. Really great story and illustrations. A pleasure to read, a favourite in our house. Thank you!

My daughter reviewed this as she loves McFly ..

"This is a short, easy to follow story written in rhyme that will surely appeal to children because of its' simple format & delightfully gross humour. Will have children & the young at heart laughing out loud. Written by two talented & successful musicians, this book is certainly a step away from the ordinary".

We've had the book a few weeks now and ..................

Biggest compliment I can give this book is my 4 year old son dives through a pile of books to get this one to read first.’s not to love!!
Brilliant illustrations, so glad I did not keep this till Christmas

We borrowed this book from the library, and DS (4) really liked it. The story is straightforward and silly and poo is obviously very funny. We liked the pictures, and thought the rhyme scheme worked for the most part and generally didn't seem forced. I don't think it's destined to become a classic, but I would buy it as a present just because it's fun. DS also like the Mars cat at the end.
