(The first book in the Dino FC series)
A novel by Keith Brumpton
Join Terry Triceratops and the Dino FC gang for the first two comic kickoffs in this funny new football series with a prehistoric twist! Synopsis: Terry Triceratops is the manager of Dinosaur FC ...and he's a dead dino walking. With the team bottom of the Premiership, chairman Danny Deinonychus drafts in hard-hitting fitness trainer Hans Hadrosaur to whip the dinos back into shape. Only problem is, Hans' gruelling new regime is taking its toll on the team, and if they don't avoid the drop, Terry faces the sack. So when Terry bravely protects the team from an autograph-hunting T-Rex, the Dino FC players are determined to secure a win against Jurassic Park Rangers and prevent Terry and Dino FC from extinction. Football fans will love this wild and witty new illustrated series, which matches the buzz and action of the Premiership with cool dino characters from a Prehistoric Age.
