This morning we received the amazing Dinosaur that pooped series to review. They were written by Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher from Mcbusted, one of my favourite bands. We already have The dinosaur that pooped Christmas as Santa placed it under the tree for the boys last year. Alfie and Thomas absolutely loved it and must have read it at least twenty times. They are typical boys who love dinosaurs and grossness so these books are perfect.
The boys sat in my bed this morning for ages reading and laughing at each story. Alfie especially loved The dinosaur that pooped the past. It sees Danny and his dinosaur friend take a trip back through history on a time travelling swing. They meet new dinosaur friends along the way and stumble across an active volcano.
Thomas is reading The dinosaur that pooped a planet below. The back of the book reads: In space, No one can smell your poop... One boy. One space rocket. One very hungry dinosaur. And NO sandwiches. The ingredients for an explosive adventure. But how will Danny get home when his dinosaur eats their rocket? Thomas verdict on the book was that it was very funny and he loved the page where it just says 'POO'. He shouts it out very loud so not the best idea to read this book out in public.
The next book is The Dinosaur that pooped Christmas. The back reads: Season's Eatings. Danny wants everything for christmas. But what he gets is a dinosaur, a very hungry dinosaur. Danny's new dino eats up all of Christmas, but as we all know, what goes in must come out. Danny is about to have the most explosive christmas of his life! There's poop, presents and prehistoric creatures in this festive feast. The book is extremely funny and I guess has the hidden message, don't to be so spoilt at Christmas!
Overall, the boys found these books very fun to read and will happily read them over and over again. The words within the book rhyme which makes for an even more interesting read. Also the illustrations are gorgeous and tell the stories well, especially if your child is still finding reading a little difficult. We would definitely recommend the Dinosaur that pooped series to any child with a good sense of humour and who finds reading boring. These will make you chuckle and is completely different to anything we have seen before.
Also Random house was kind enough to send the boys some dinosaur themed activity sheets which they have had great fun completing today. You can download your activity sheets through the Random house website here. There is also a fun game on their website which we have become very competitive at.
