The Dinosaur That Pooped The Bed review

The Dinosaur That Pooped The Bed is the latest edition in the fab series by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter. It was released at the end of August and is available to buy from amazon here, book. I was so pleased when we were asked to review it as I have really enjoyed the other books in the series. I wrote a blog post about the previous ones which you can read here, Old post.

In this story Danny and Dinosaur want to watch the tv but mum won't let them until they have tidied their room. Danny decides that the best way to clean up his room is to make dinosaur eat up all the mess. They think they have gotten away with their plan until there is a rumbling sound!! When there is a rumbling in dinosaurs tummy, it means only one thing. He has to poo!

Eva adores reading this book and she has it read to her a few times a week. She even enjoys having a random conversation with me about it. The illustrations are as good as ever and the story itself is full of humour and easy to follow. The rhyming is excellent but I suppose this comes from the authors being musicians. 

We were also sent the Dinasour That Pooped A Planet sound book to review which was released at the end of last month. If you are a fan of the series then this is a must to add to your collection. Eva loves sound books and I can honestly say that ever since we received it she has asked for it to be read to her every night. It's her new favourite book. The sounds are as hilarious and silly as the story itself. Eva loves the sound of Danny crying and also when she gets to press the button that says poo out loud. I hope they will turn the rest of the series into sound books.

Eva now seems to be the ideal age for really understanding the humour and fun that these books encompass. She laughs when she finds something funny which is brilliant for me as a parent to witness. I love seeing her embracing the story and enjoying something so much. They give us a lot to talk about.

Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter have managed to make story time fun again and I truly commend them for it. If you are looking for books that will entertain both you and your child then these are definetley for you. Don't just take my word for it, head to amazon to see all of the wonderful reviews that have been left.
