Mrs Long-Melton is currently reading The Christmasaurus and the Naughty List by Tom Fletcher.  This is the most recent story in the Christmasaurus trilogy.  They are amazing books about a little boy called William Trundle and the adventures he has with the Christmasaurus in the North Pole.  The first two books are magical stories that I love to read every Christmas, and this new book is not disappointing.  Read a Christmasaurus book if you can this Christmas - they are beautifully written and illustrated - and the first one even has it's own sound track!  There is even a Christmasaurus picture book available if you don't want to read a novel!
