Llama united

Allen, Scott, author; Horne, Sarah, 1979- illustrator

What happens when 11 llamas unknowingly eat the ashes of one of the greatest footballers of all time? They become brilliant at football, of course! Managed by 11-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

Author note

Scott Allen was brought up in the horse-racing town of Epsom. After discovering he was too tall and heavy to be a jockey he turned his attention to football. At sixteen he started writing for fanzines before becoming a professional sports writer, editor and digital-content specialist. He is a West Ham supporter, but we don't hold that against him. Scott now lives in Yorkshire with his wife, two children and cat. He likes Twiglet sandwiches and still has ambitions of becoming a pirate or an outlaw.

Sarah Horne grew up in snowy Derbyshire, UK, with some goats and a brother. Alongside working on some very funny children's titles, Sarah has also worked on commissions for the Guardian, the Sunday Times, Kew Gardens, Sesame Street and for IKEA as their Children's Illustrator in Residence. She now draws, paints, writes and giggles from underneath a pile of paper at her studio in London.

Reviews

A great read for the younger audience, engaging literacy, visual and comprehension skills in a fun-filled, warm-hearted story.
Armadillo Magazine||[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.
LoveReading4Kids||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.
Booktrust||Madcap and properly funny, you'll definitely be rooting for team Llama United as they take on the best in the cup.
WRD Magazine||A great read for the younger audience, engaging literacy, visual and comprehension skills in a fun-filled, warm-hearted story.
