Dino FC: The Great Kit Catastrophe
Days are dark for Dino FC. Their team shirts are shabby and ripped, the elastic on their shorts is sagging – and their footballing fortunes are equally woeful.
Player-Manager Terry Triceratops wants to revive team spirit: maybe some spanking new kit would help? But the eagerly anticipated kit is disastrous: it’s all the same size - and the team are not! – and awful to play in. What is Terry to do?
As in all the best football stories, it all comes down to a final penalty on which the game hangs – but the suspense is maintained to the end! With its winning combination of football, dinosaurs and humorous cartoon-style illustrations this is an engaging, entertaining and satisfying tale of dinosaur underdogs triumphing!
