Imbued with more than his fair share of talents, Tom Fletcher is probably best known as guitarist and founder of chart-topping band McFly. Having penned ten UK number-one singles, it’s no wonder Fletcher’s a dab hand at writing children’s books. 

In this article Tom is quizzed on his latest tale ‘The Christmasaurus and the Winter Witch’. This, he explains, has “a lead character who is a wheelchair user where the story doesn’t have anything to do with him being a wheelchair user”. No wonder our newest Patron Tom is such a welcome addition to the Whizz-Kidz family.
