Synopsis

The Vanishing Goalie 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 has reached the cup final for the first time in one million and nine years! However, their ruthless rivals, Tyrannosaurus Hotspur will stop at nothing to ensure they take home the trophy. Every dino knows that Dino FC only have eleven players and no subs, so when goalie Pteradonna goes missing before the match, the T-Rexs are prime suspects. It's up to Terry Triceratops and number one fan Iqbal Iguanadon to rescue Pteradonna - but with just ten minutes to kickoff, Dino FC are missing two of their most crucial players. Can our favourite bunch of hapless dinosaur stars beat the bullying T-Rexs and win the cup final? 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.
