The Dinosaur that Pooped a Planet written by the dynamic duo Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher, and illustrated by Garry Parsons.

The Dinosaur that Pooped a Planet is a very explosive space adventure about a little boy and his ever hungry pet dinosaur who travel into outer space. When Danny realises that they have forgotten their packed lunch, he starts to panic as the dinosaur eats his way through everything in sight including their space rocket! How will they ever make it home?

Our Touch to See adaptation of the book features hand-painted tactile pictures, braille (in UEB grade 1 and 2) and audio descriptions read by British television presenter and actor, Dallas Campbell. You can listen to a snippet here:


A huge thank you to publisher, Penguin Random House UK, Dallas Campbell, our skilled volunteers who handcrafted every tactile image, and The Mackintosh Foundation for funding this project.
