A great children’s book for Missouri Tiger football fans. The main character (a local boy with a familiar name to Tiger fans—Truman), while enjoying a walk through the MU campus, meets a young rival dressed in crimson and blue. In the spirit of the historic Border Showdown, they face off in friendly one-on-one football game. When he’s faced with a little adversity, Truman looks to the Tiger winning football tradition for inspiration—and ultimately prevails. Young MU fans will enjoy this RivalReads story of competition and team triumph. And older Mizzou faithful can connect with the authentic MU settings, uniforms and illustrations of Memorial Stadium and other campus landmarks. When it comes to MU vs. KU, you’re never too young to pick sides!
