The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter

It's nearly December and time to be on the look out for fun children's books to get the little ones into the Christmas spirit.

The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas is a fun retelling of the classic poem The Night Before Christmas. In this version, a greedy little boy called Danny, who already has more toys than he could possibly play with asks Santa for even more toys. Santa is disgusted with his greed and vows to teach him a lesson.

Danny hears a noise on the roof and creeps downstairs. Under the Christmas tree with all the other presents he sees a huge egg. An enormous dinosaur hatches out of it and proceeds to eat the tree, presents, Danny's family and even his house. When it sees the boy crying the dinosaur feels guilty and poos everything out again. My little one particularly enjoys shouting "poo!" at the appropriate time (and there are very few occasions in life when it's considered appropriate to shout "poo!").

The illustrations are done in a very cartoonish style (with lots of poo). The dinosaur is not at all scary looking and everybody is okay in the end so it would be suitable to read to kids aged two and up. It's gross and childish and kids will love it.

Rated 9/10

If you're fond of toilet humour you might also enjoy Father Christmas Needs A Wee.

Why? Because it's a refreshing change from most Christmas stories for kids

Oh dear, why does everything resort to toilet humour? That being said, I'm sure boys will love it.
