Dougie is the bass player and backing vocalist of british pop-rock band McFly. He has co-writer credits on many of McFly's tracks, including the lead writer credit on their 2007 number one single "Transylvania". Poynter also wrote an unrecorded track called Silence Is A Scary Sound, which is featured as a live recording on their third studio album Motion In The Ocean. Poynter was 15 when he joined the band. Because of his young age, Dougie and the other members of McFly hold the record for the youngest band to ever have a debut album go straight to number one, a record previously held by The Beatles.

About the authors:
Dougie Poynter is fascinated by reptiles, Tom Fletcher loves space, 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.
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 than 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.’
For your chance to win one of our signed copies, please comment below with the names of the other two band members of McFly…
