Picture Book of the week.

The Dinosaur that Pooped the Bed by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Pounter. Illustrated by Garry Parsons.

The phenomenon of the book that buys itself and appears on my book shelf has struck again! I started reading this book without any prior knowledge of the contents, but soon discovered that the title is literal! Danny wants to watch TV with Dino (imaginary Dinosaur) , but his mum won't let him until he's tidied his room (good on you for trying mum). Danny decided that to clear up the mess quickly, Dino should eat everything. He does, but then they get stuck in the room, until the Dinosaur poos it all out! (queue particularly disturbing poo illustration) Danny doesn't get to watch TV!

I wish I'd been more prepared for the poo page, but the kids seemed to find it quite funny. It's good for teaching your children that they won't get to watch TV if they poo all over their rooms.

I'm excited to read 'The Dinosaur that pooped Christmas' and 'The Dinosaur that pooped the past'
