The Dinosaur that Pooped…
We were recently sent 3 really fun books to review about ‘The Dinosaur that Pooped’, written by Tom Fletcher & Dougie Poynter from McFly. I was instantly intrigued by the titles of these books. When you read the words ‘Dinosaur’ and ‘Pooped’ you kind of want to read on to find out what happens! Lamb loves dinosaurs, and as he’s a boy, I’m sure one day soon he will love poop comedy, so these books will be right up his street!
What I initially liked about these books is the illustrations (by Garry Parsons). The dinosaurs are big and bold, but also cute and friendly. The colours are all bright and vivid, which makes a change from a lot of the books on Lambs shelf at the moment. We have plenty of baby books illustrated with soft pastels, but now Lamb is a toddler it’s nice for him to have a range of books on his shelf.
The book that I’m going to concentrate on in this review is ‘The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas‘, for obvious reasons. Well, it’s certainly very different to any other children’s story I’ve read before! I love that the verses rhyme throughout and I love the humour. Ok, so the part where he poos is a bit gross, but I know that most kids will find this really funny! In each book the story is building up to that big moment, the dinosaur eats and eats, then you turn the page and in huge letters is the word POO! Which you know the kids will love to shout once they get to know the stories.
Reading the story I felt it kept my attention and I wanted to keep reading, so I have no doubt it will be the same with Lamb. He’s a little too young for this book at the moment, however it’s perfect for my 3 year old nephew. He will absolutely love these books, which is why I have decided to give them to him as part of his Christmas present.
If you have a toddler that loves to read, and you’re looking for something a bit different then I highly recommend these books. They are funny, well written, beautifully illustrated and perfect for your cheeky little chappies!
If you don’t mind a little toilet humour then this collection of books is for you.
