Tom Fletcher, bestselling author and star of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, has re-invented his bestselling story The Christmasaurus as a rhyming picture-book adventure for younger readers to enjoy.
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 . . . Audio guide read by Sir Derek Jacobi

Hello, are you feeling Christmassy? And do you like dinosaurs? Oh you do! Excellent! I think you are going to love this story. It’s about a very special dinosaur – The Christmasaurus who meets a wonderful young human friend and together they discover the magic of believing.
In the third picture the Christmasaurus has jumped off the ledge into the blue sky. He’s looking very pleased with himself!
Oops! On the right hand page the Christmasaurus has crashed back down onto the ice.
He’s lying on his tummy with his legs and arms spread out beneath him.
On the right hand page we are in the North Pole and there’s a party going on. The Christmasaurus is holding the little boy’s hands and they’re both laughing and singing. Santa and the elves are dancing beneath a string of golden fairy lights.
