The Dinosaur that Pooped the Bed by Tom Fletcher & Dougie Poynter

The Dinosaur that Pooped the Bed is a long line of other books in this series. Technically they called the Danny and Dinosaur series, but every single one of them involved poop.

I first encounter this series when I reviewed The Dinosaur that Pooped the Past, which I found quite favourite, so I picked up The Dinosaur that Pooped the Bed.

Even though I had read a previous Danny and Dinosaur book, I thought that this one would have been about bed time problems. Something that young children could relate to and help them overcome it.


This is about Danny who isn't allowed to watch TV until he has tidied his room. Instead of actually cleaning his room, he has a not so bright idea of getting his dinosaur to eat everything instead of cleaning it up. Well, you probably know where this story is headed to.

I read this to my class. Usually kids love toilet/poop humour. Baa Baa Smart Sheep is a brilliantly written book whose whole story revolves around poop! Initially my kids were intrigued; I'm not sure if it was the story, the pictures or both combined, but as class, they didn't enjoy it. It was too disgusting.

Sure, a couple of kids thought it was funny, but there were no cries of read it again, nor did anyone pick it up during SSR time.

Redeeming features? The illustrations are good. Nice and vivid.

If you want to check out Danny and Dinosaur, perhaps start with a different one.
