The Christmasaurus

The Christmasaurus

Tom Fletcher's timeless picture book adventure

Summary

Bestselling author Tom Fletcher has re-invented his beloved Christmas story The Christmasaurus as a rhyming picture-book adventure for younger readers to enjoy - now in paperback!

Santa and his reindeer live as north as you can go,
in a place that's full of magic (and quite a lot of snow!).
But Santa and his reindeer do not live there on their own,
for there's a special dinosaur that also calls it home . . .

The Christmasaurus wants more than anything to be able to fly, and help pull Santa's sleigh across the sky on Christmas Eve. But flying turns out to be much harder than he thought, even with Santa's help! One special Christmas, however, he falls down a chimney and meets a dinosaur-obsessed little boy who teaches him the magic of believing . . .

With Shane Devries' breathtaking illustrations, a pitch-perfect, read-aloud rhyming text and two magical surprise gate-fold pages, The Christmasaurus Picture Book is the perfect Christmas gift.
