Can you imagine what might happen if a group of meat-eating dinosaurs got together with a group of plant-eating dinosaurs for a friendly game of soccer?  Lisa Wheeler, author of the popular Dino-Hockey, whimsically describes how the Biters in blue, with T.Rex as their striker, challenge the Grazers in gold, with Ankylosaurus as their striker, to a soccer match. . .Wheeler has met hundreds of soccer-playing youngsters who asked her to write a dino-soccer book.  Gott spent much of his childhood both playing soccer and also playing with toy dinosaurs.  Working with each other, they have produced a winning combination.
