mcfly twitter chat


Get set for a brilliant Twitter chat with our favourite McFly boys Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher who have just published their first children’s book The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas.

Dougie’s fascinated by reptiles, Tom loves Christmas, and they have a shared obsession with poop! The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas is a story of just what happens when a baby dinosaur’s appetite runs away with itself and the things he has to do to return Christmas back where it belongs…but possibly not quite as clean and pristine as before!

The book is a modern Christmas classic with a strong moral about the dangers of being greedy and truly appreciating the value of Christmas. After writing songs together for nine years, Tom and Dougie wrote this book in the same way that they write their song lyrics.

They said: “We both know that as kids we would have loved this book and so we hope that when children and parents read it they laugh as much as we did when we wrote it. Smelly Christmas everyone.”

We’re super excited to be welcoming the boys for fun morning chat so make sure you join us and don’t forget to tweet us your book-related questions for the boys!

Dougie and Tom will be joining us at 11am but don’t worry if you can’t make it at that time. You can tweet your questions to us in advance on Friday morning, just remember to use the hashtag #AskMcFly.

When: Friday 26 October. The boys will join us at 11am

Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter from boy band McFly have written their first book and The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas is the hilarious result. It’s a laugh-out-loud, rhyming Christmas tale about a greedy little boy and an even greedier dinosaur who manages to take Christmas excess to a whole new level! Illustrator Garry Parsons joins the McFly lads for what promises to be a real Christmas cracker of a show!
