The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas is Mumsnet’s picture book of the month, and to celebrate this they want us to send questions to Dougie and Tom HERE , the 10 questions they think are the best ones will receive a signed copy of the book. They’re also giving away 50 copies of it. You can find more info below.

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 Boy Band, McFly. Here’s the boys special message to mumsnetters:

Dougie Poynter is fascinated by reptiles, Tom Fletcher loves Christmas, and they have a shared obsession with poop! 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.

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.

Tom and Dougie comment ‘We absolutely love children’s fiction and have a passion for writing. We constantly come up with ridiculous ideas and can’t quite believe that this one is becoming a reality. We spend hours in book shops when we’re on tour finding inspiration from all kinds of books but more often that not we find ourselves in the kids picture book section getting funny looks from parents and staff.
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 inviting you to send in your questions to Dougie and Tom before end of Sunday 9th 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 17th December and if your question is answered you will receive signed copies of The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas.

We are giving away 50 free copies of The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas. For your chance to claim a copy, fill out your details HERE
