The Great Kit Catastrophe by Keith Brumpton


The Great Kit Catastrophe by Keith Brumpton

Join Terry Triceratops and Dino FC for more fresh and funny football antics, in this illustrated series with a prehistoric twist! Dino FC's kit is worn, out-of-date, and coming apart at the seams. So when chairman Danny Deinonychus holds a competition to design a new kit, Dino FC hope their new look will help get them back in the game. Unfortunately, not only is the 'new' kit suspiciously similar to the old one - it doesn't fit. With Pteradonna goalkeeping in a kit that's too big and Marcus Diplodocus defending in too-small shorts, Dino FC really are fashion victims, losing 5-1 to Supersaurus Celtic. Disappointed, Terry gives the new kit away to some young Dino fans, and the team go back to their old shabby chic. But could the surprise appearance of their new fans at the next match give Dino FC the boost they need to inspire them to victory? After all, it isn't about the shirt, but about the dinosaur inside it. 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.
