The review for Christmasaurus is bought to you today by Daisy, she read this book last year and loved it so much she has gifted this festive book to her cousins for Christmas this year.

I loved this book it was really fun to read but sad in places about a lonely dinosaur and a lonely disabled boy who met on Christmas eve. I didn’t like the bully Brenda in this story and she made me sad for William as she was so mean and I hate bullies.

I found this book magical and memorable it was a fun adventure with lots of silliness and fun words that made me feel really Christmassy.

I was lucky enough to have the musical edition and love the soundtrack that goes with the book, it is a book that will cheer you up as it is full of fun and music and Christmas with brilliant illustrations of William and the dinosaur that I loved. My friend is reading the book at the moment and she loves the illustrations and we have been talking about it at school.

I am really excited to hear that Tom Fletcher is writing another book and I will definitely read it next year when it comes out.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
