Singer-songwriter turned children’s author Tom Fletcher joins Konnie Huq in the Penguin studio to talk about his first novel The Christmasaurus.

Tom discusses his lifelong obsession with Christmas and dinosaurs, and brings along a selection of objects including his miniature Christmas tree, which sits on his bedside table throughout the year, and his trusty red coffee mug. He reveals what Christmas was like in the McFly band house, and explains why writing books is a dream come true for him.

  • The Christmasaurus

  • The number-one-bestselling, magical first children's novel from Tom Fletcher.

    This is a story about a boy named William Trundle and a dinosaur named the Christmasaurus.

    It's about how they meet one Christmas Eve and have a magical adventure. It's about friendship and families, sleigh bells and Santa, singing elves and flying reindeer.

    It's about discovering your heart's true desire, and learning that the impossible might just be possible . . .
