The boys from McFly joined us for a hilarious chat about their new kids’ book The Dinosaur That Pooped A Planet

McFly boys Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher joined us for a lively and hilarious Twitter chat on @Tescomagazine talking about their brand new children’s book The Dinosaur That Pooped A Planet!

@EmmaBritton25 Where do you get your ideas from?
The books are a combination of the things we love most! And strange dreams after eating too much cheese!

@sophiieebennett Are you doing any book signings?
Yes, Bath Festival on 3 October – and more to be announced soon!

@t_preysler what was your favourite book when you were a kid?
I loved the Dr Seuss books and Thomas the Tank Engine (Tom) I liked Dogger! (Dougie).

@abiwebster96 Would you rather go into space or back in time when dinosaurs existed?
I’d go to space, Dougie would go back in time, and then we’d come back and compare notes.

@sarahlovesmcfly Who would do the voice for Danny if it was made into a film?
I quite like bandmate Danny’s voice – he has a Northern twang.

@x_x_Jade_x_x What are you most looking forward to this year?
I’m looking forward to Christmas – Dougie. I’m looking forward to playing the Albert Hall in a few weeks – Tom.

@littlelottee20 Would you combine music with your books in the future and create a children’s musical?
YEAH! That would be awesome.

@NiiDaR Why dinosaurs? And are y’all ever coming to Australia?
We would love to go to Australia soon! We both grew up loving dinosaurs. We’re of the Jurassic Park era *hums theme tune*

@chloShaughnessy If you could be in the film Back to the Future or Jurassic Park which one would you choose to be in?
We’d combine them and make the most boring movie ever called: BACK TO THE PARK!!

@tomsmoustache_ What’s your favourite type of dinosaur?

@MissAlisonx Do you have other books in mind other than the Dinosaur that Pooped ones?
We have lots of ideas for other books… but we always end up coming back to poop!

@FfionMEdwards Could you draw me a dinosaur right now?
Sure, here’s our two pictures of dinosaurs.

@georgie_mcfly Would you let Danny and Harry help with your book?
Noooooooo! They’re not really into the stuff we like. They’re into sports and spend loads of time in the gym. Though we did dedicate this book to them.

@heyimrachel_ Who would play the lead if it was a film?
We’d have to go back in time to get Macaulay Culkin!

@GD_Rosie Where would you keep a dinosaur?
I’d put it next to the Dalek in my garage (Tom).

@hell0maryhere Was the character Danny based on Danny from McFly?
Yeah, loosely – though character Danny is slightly more intelligent than bandmate Danny

@Charlie_McFlyer What is the best thing about writing with each other?
It’s not as lonely.

@fletcherhotness Do you prefer writing songs or books?
It’s a similar process, really. The thought process for writing books is similar to music.

@_LoveIsEasy_ Would you consider a scratch and sniff version of the books?
Yeah! That would be awesome. We will provide the smells.

@jshawti3 Would you ever make a pooping dinosaur song?
Yeah, we’ve already written some but no one’s heard them yet.

@AnneMawsonX How long did it take you to write the book?
It can take a while! The writing can be quite quick, but we have vivid imaginations that have to be honed in.

@Ellendeasy What other pooping animals would you write about?
Ants – they create the smallest of poops.

@puddicles Will the dinosaur ever get a girlfriend?

@SeleneGMustache Who had the more crazy and funny ideas for the book?
We both have them at different moments and get carried away.

@amazednosity If you could go back in time what would you do?
I would kidnap Macaulay Culkin! (Dougie)

@tanlili Which dinosaur from Jurassic Park is your least favourite?
Ooo. We don’t have a least favourite, all dinosaurs are great. The favourite is definitely the pachycephalosaurus!

@caraclarkmf if you went to space, what planet would you go to?

@jshawti3 Could we get a selfie?
Here’s our selfie…

@magestic face If you could cross-breed the dinosaur with any other animal to create the ultimate animal, what would you pick?
Probably an octopus or an ostrich… Dinoctopus and Ostrichosaurus.. ha.

@lostgirl23 If the next book is set in a particular decade which one would it be?
The 60s… we’d have a hippy dinosaur!

@Will there ever be a book called The Dinosaur That Pooped McFly?
Good idea! Maybe…

@MillyLindus What’s your favourite space fact?
You grow taller when you’re in space because there is no gravity and your spine straightens out – Tom.

@judddddddddd What’s the most interesting dinosaur fact you know?
A lot of dinosaurs had feathers… the T-rex was basically a big turkey.

@chloShaughnessy Did you ever think that these books would be such a success?
Never! We wanted them to be made for us, so we could see them!

@emmahitchenor If you could only take one person into space to live with you there for 10 years, who would you choose?
Brian Cox

@alys_mcflyGD Will there be a dino poop book part three?
Yes there will… it’ll be about a dinosaur and poop and it’ll be bigger than space! You’ll have to wait and see.

@cantadadejones What’s the dinosaur’s name?
No name, just Dinosaur!
