In a nutshell: llama football stars called up for England at the World Cup | Llamas United took the footballing (and book) world by storm in their first adventure, and will win more readers still with their second. Real llamas, they are brilliant footballers, thanks to having eaten the ashes of one of the world’s best players, and their manager young Tim Gravy is determined to take them to the World Cup. And let’s face it, the England national team could do with a shake up! There are some hurdles to overcome, ensuring the llamas and human players bond for example, working out just what is upsetting Tim’s friend and team trainer Cairo, not to mention portions of poisoned lasagne, but it all comes to a climax – doesn’t it always? – with England versus Germany in the final. Wonderfully silly, completely engaging and with top class footballing action, this is one for football fans everywhere. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Llamas Go Large by Scott Allen

Llama United has gone from strength to strength after their first Cup win, gaining fame and fortune along the way. Sadly the England football team is not having the same success and, with the World Cup looming, their manager is desperate to find a magic ingredient to beat their bitter rivals. Friends (and llama managers) Tim and Cairo have just that ingredient and agree to loan some of Llama United's top players. But not everything is plain sailing and, with Cairo strangely distracted by the rival team, and the llamas having trouble settling in, Tim has his work cut out for him. It seems not everybody wants to support the team with an impossible dream . . .

Llamas Go Large is the second hilarious Llama United book from Scott Allen, full of football funnies and laugh-a-minute llamas, illustrated by Sarah Horne.
