I have written before about the alarming preponderance of books about underpants and farting for children these days. We're up to our bums in them in the children's library.
It gets worse.
Now it appears that those naughty,naughty boys from McFly are responsible for the season's top kids book: The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas. Perfectly respectable reviewers rate it highly, and I have to say the rhymes, while unpleasantly scatological, are rather good.

This all 'hark's back to South Park's Mr Hankey The Christmas Poo, which includes the classic lyrics: 'a present from down below... he's seen the love inside of you'.
Harmless yuletide fun in those days, maybe, but since then I have come to know a real life Mr Hankey. He's a very sweet and smiley old fella, so please don't show him this...:
