Review Text

The puritan in me says this is not something we should encourage, surely, toilet humour doesn't have a place in children's literature, does it? Then I remember my children's favourite TV show from the 1980s, the wolves, who farted and belched and made everyone, including me and Wendy, have hysterics. Toilet humour is harmless, and when it involved dinosaurs, there's no harm done, is there? This will make you laugh, and the illustrations are terrific, so what can go wrong? I'll put the puritan in me back in the sideboard and save it for something more worthy. This is brilliant!
