Why settle for a pony or a puppy for Christmas when you could have a dinosaur? A rollicking adventure from singer-songwriter and YouTuber Tom Fletcher.

Once upon a time--long, long ago, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth--an egg rolled away from its mother and landed in the ocean, where it froze solid and stayed peacefully for thousands of years. Then one day Santa and his elves discover the frozen egg, and Santa sits on it to see if it will hatch. But he can't guess what's inside. . . . A dinosaur!

Meanwhile, a young boy named William Trundle has only ever wished for one thing for Christmas: a dinosaur! So when Santa accidentally gives William the real Christmasaurus instead of a stuffed replica, it's the BEST CHRISTMAS EVER! Until an evil man known as the Hunter decides a dinosaur will be the perfect addition to his collection.

A wild and hilarious adventure ensues. An instant Christmas classic!
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this quirky Christmas outing, William Trundle-a dinosaur enthusiast who is being teased by a bully because he uses a wheelchair-requests a real dinosaur from Santa. Luckily, a prologue explains, a single frozen dinosaur egg happens to have survived. Santa's elves dig it up in the North Pole, and Santa reluctantly agrees to sit atop it (his "bum" is the only one big enough). Out hatches Christmasaurus: in Devries's charming, grayscale art, the dino appears as a friendly creature with horns and a featherlike fringe around his neck. Christmasaurus-who doesn't feel like he fits in among the elves, reindeer, and Santa-accidentally hitches a ride on the sleigh. Readers will guess that Christmasaurus and William are destined for one another-but first, a dastardly villain with a pipe and a pup intervenes. Making his middle grade debut, songwriter Fletcher offers a goofy-humored fantasy about differences, friendship, and holiday magic. Ages 8-12. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
