McFly ‘writing’ sequel to dino book
Tom Fletcher and Dougie Pointer of adult popstars McFly are to publish a new tome in their kids’ literature series, ‘The Dinosaur That Pooped’. It all began last March, when the pair first hinted that their original book ‘The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas’ – a ‘Night Before Christmas’ rhyming-type affair (with added reptilian/faecal themes) – might be “the first of many”.
Talking to the BBC at the National Television Awards on Wednesday night, Fletcher said: “There will be another kids’ book. We’ve just finished writing the second in ‘The Dinosaur That Pooped’ series. So that will be coming out before summer”.
“Before summer”, hmm. Given that ‘The Dinosaur’ is prone to pooping public holidays, I’m guessing ‘The Dinosaur That Pooped Easter’ is a likely title. But really, it might be anything.
And that’s not all. Asked if he and Poynter were considering any potential spin-off titles, Fletcher said “We might be, yes, we’re just in talks. We have a few ideas. So yes, there could be a few more to come in a different series”.
