The Guardian published a review of the best books for kids this christmas and Tom’s The Christmasaurus is one of them! read below what they have to say about the book.

Most kids want at least one unattainable thing for Christmas – a pony, a spaceship, a real live dinosaur. That’s the simple but effective premise of The Christmasaurus (Penguin hardback £12.99), the latest book from erstwhile McFly singer Tom Fletcher, whose dino-themed picture-book output (with bandmate Dougie Poynter) probably helped earn his icelolly.com celebrity dad of the year 2016 accolade.

For a man more used to the three-minute medium, Fletcher’s not bad. The story of Jurassic-fixated William Trundle (wheelchair-using, mumless) and a dinosaur raised at the north pole (who secretly wants to be a reindeer), Fletcher’s first solo venture for older children is full of redemption, magic and gleeful silliness, especially on the mechanics of Christmas.

Elves called Snozzletrump and the like speak in rhyme. Santa plays vinyl records on his in-sleigh gramophone; that’s the boost that sends it airborne. The tale draws to a climax on Trundle’s snowy rooftop, where a big game hunter tries to bag a flying reindeer as his latest rare trophy – or, perhaps, even a dinosaur?
