Meet Hooey Higgins along with his oddball family and friends in a laugh-out-loud madcap adventure loaded with boy appeal. Hooey Higgins is desperately in love with the humongous chocolate egg in Mr. Danson s store window, that is. Too bad he and his best friend, Twig, have nowhere near enough money to buy it. But when a shark is spotted off the coast, Hooey and Twig dream up a plan: capture the shark and charge people to view it. Brilliant! With Hooey s older brother masterminding the foolproof scheme, they set off with ketchup, a cricket bat, a floral quilt, and a rope in tow. What they find is so amazing it blows the shark plan out of the water! Aided by Emma Dodson s comical illustrations, Steve Voake introduces a hilarious new character in a fast-paced story kids will sink their teeth into."

About the Author

Steve Voake is the author of the Daisy Dawson books as well as two books for older readers. He lives in Somerset, England. Emma Dodson is the author-illustrator of "Speckle the Spider." She lives in Surrey, England.


Already an established series figure in Britain, Hooey appears here in his American debut, and readers who speed through this fast and funny read will hope that more installments quickly become available. Voake s text is both lively and wry and his characters are fresh and believable. Dodson s numerous monochromatic ink and gouache illustrations are equally original. Although this has broad appeal, it might be a particularly good choice for the boys goofing off in the back of the room. The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
