The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher 5/5
The Christmasaurus is a story about a boy named William Trundle, and a dinosaur, 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, music and magic. It’s about discovering your heart’s true desire, and learning that the impossible might just be possible.
As I type this, I have a 7 year old giving input over my shoulder. I read this novel to her every night for the past few weeks, and can honestly say that it was a huge hit. It is full of Christmas magic and wonder, and in true Tom Fletcher style, lots of dino-awesomeness.
I’m a huge fan of the main character. William Trundle is a wheelchair user, and it’s awesome that such characters are represented in children’s literature. Bullying and its effects is also highlighted.
My daughter says it is not only an amazing book, but the best book she has ever read. That’s quite the testament to Fletcher’s storytelling skills. It is a book that is meant to be read out loud, and there is a plot twist that had both of us gawping at each other.
In summary, read this book to your kids!
