Llama UnitedAges 6-8
It's time to get behind the football team with an impossible dream!
What happens when eleven llamas unknowingly eat the ashes of one of the greatest footballers of all time? They become brilliant at football, of course! Managed by eleven-year-old Tim, his unusual friend Cairo and Scottish World Cup-winner McCloud (yes that 'happened' apparently), Llama United goes on an amazing cup run. But who wants to lose to a team of stupid llamas? Nobody, that's who!
Rival teams will do anything in their power to stop Llama United in its tracks. When the best cup in the world is at stake, football can be a nasty old business . . .
Scott Allen's Llama United is full of football funnies and laugh-a-minute llamas, illustrated by Sarah Horne.
Support the team in the second hilarious Llama United book when they go to the World Cup in Llamas Go Large.
[A] weird, wacky and totally bonkers book... hugely enjoyable and bound to raise plenty of laughs throughout
Parents in Touch
Silly, and as satisfying as stories of unlikely champions always are, the book is also full of quality description of the footballing action as Llama United progress up the league. As always, Sarah Horne's inky illustrations add to the fun.
Arthur McLuck’s narrating voice is very funny, the llamas are hilarious and the cup matches genuinely exciting, whilst the Gray family dynamics are beautifully portrayed.
