Description

The Golly Toy and Game Company is hosting the regional rounds for the next Gollywhopper Games, and this time it's brother against brother in the physical challenges and mental puzzles. The companion to the popular The Gollywhopper Games will appeal to fans of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Chasing Vermeer.

Chock-full of puzzles, riddles, and challenges for the reader to solve along with the main characters, this fast-paced companion to The Gollywhopper Games is bigger, bolder, and braver! The Golly Toy and Game Company's Gollywhopper Games was such a big success the last time, the company's executives have decided to host the competition again. Cameron and Spencer Schein have scored two highly sought-after slots in the regional round-will one of the Schein brothers make it all the way to the finals? Favorite characters from the first book make guest appearances, and a new cast of competitors, both boys and girls, get set to compete against (and with) Cameron and Spencer. There are twists and turns and complications-as well as lots of great things to eat-in this page-turner of a race to the finish line!

Review quote

Praise for The Gollywhopper Games: "Plain good fun for puzzle addicts, with plenty of action and suspense." -- Kirkus Reviews "Nonstop action, appealing pencil illustrations, and increasingly difficult brainteasers will keep readers engaged." -- Booklist "This has `independent reading book report for reluctant readers' written all over it." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Back cover copy

Some people are born winners, but Cameron definitely isn't one of them.

So what is Cameron even doing in the second Gollywhopper Games? Solving puzzles. Performing stunts. Racing against the clock, that's what. But it's not as if he has a real chance at walking away with the one million dollars. Or the instant fame. Or the eternal bragging rights.

But he--not Spencer, his older brother--is the one competing against 999,999 kids on national TV, inside a giant toy factory. Cameron knows he won't be the winner. But Cameron doesn't know everything . . . . right?

Jody has written as many books for young readers as there are players in a doubles tennis match. To find out how many brothers she has, take the number of bases on a baseball diamond and divide it by the number of times Grover Cleveland was president of the United States.
