Quadzilla Finds His Footing

Aj Dillon

Quadzilla loves spending time with his monster friends but gets discouraged when he struggles to do their favorite activities. To cheer him up, his friends invite him to try a new game - football! Quadzilla Finds His Footing is an uplifting story about trying new things, even if it isn't easy.


"Even though Quadzilla is a book about monsters, it teaches us what it means to be human. Yes, we all have imperfections, but if we embrace them, joy will be revealed. It's a great life lesson for kids and adults alike."

-Charlie Berens; comedian, journalist, and creator of "Manitowoc Minute"

"Quadzilla Finds His Footing is a reminder that we all have different abilities and it's important to have friends that help us find our strengths. I can't wait to share these life lessons with my boys."

-Randall Cobb, professional football player in the National Football League

"The message was so sweet. Everyone has things they're good at; it just takes some people a little longer than others to find what those things are. Good friends can help you figure it out."

-Kurt Benkert, professional football player in the National Football League

"A great story about a big-legged dinosaur named Quadzilla who discovers his love for football. My son, Beaux, loves the illustrations!"

-Tyler Beede, professional baseball player in Major League Baseball

"AJ Dillon's Quadzilla Finds His Footing isn't merely a book about football, nor is it just for kids. Quadzilla is a book that teaches us why it's okay to be different. In fact, it teaches us why we should celebrate our differences. My eight-year-old daughter, Wren, was recently diagnosed with dyslexia. She connected to Quadzilla - and all the other monsters - in a way that she hasn't with other characters in books or even movies. I can't wait for more children to learn about this wonderful book and know they're not alone, in what often seems like a world that's too big or too busy to care about their differences."

-Jordan Schultz, sports analyst
