The Dinosaur That Pooped the Past by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

February 2015, Random House Children's Publishers, 32 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Content: humour

When they accidently go back through history on a time-travelling swing, Danny and Dinosaur meet some new dino friends. But soon there's a rumbling noise; it's a volcano about to erupt! Can Dinosaur save the day by pooping them back to the future?

Nayu's thoughts  
This third book in the series is the first one which I've read, and it won't be my last. As much as I hate to generalise, this is the kind of book boys would love to read, since poop features in it in a good way (of sorts). I love the cute round style illustration with bright colours and lots of action from both the text and the pictures. 

The way of time travelling back in time was fun to read, and going forwards in time was even funnier, with expressions of horror from many at what the dinosaur was doing. Yet it's only by pooping that the dinosaur can save the day, which is the only thing that mattered. You'll laugh a lot for this read – be prepared for repeated read requests from younger readers.
