The Lovereading4Kids comment
Olympic fever strikes Shrimpton-on-Sea when Mr Papalopoulos, the owner of the local Greek restaurant, offers to sponsor sports day. Hooey and his classmates Twig, Basbo and Will are all keen to show their prowess in events such as welly wanging – that’s the knowledgeable Samantha’s speciality - the high-jump, sprinting and the rest. Chaos follows before the excitement of the day and all the fun of the races. Amidst the laughs, the school friends – and readers - learn more about the Olympics and the Ancient Greeks who created them.

See: Hooey hitting the high jump! Samantha wanging the welly! Twig versus Basbo in the sprint! And what is Hooey, Will and Twig's secret weapon? Cheese. But we're not talking any old fromage here - oh no, this is the ancient Greek sporting Cheese of Champions! Want to know what happens? You'd Feta get reading! This is a fourth book in the Hooey Higgins series for kids who like to larf - perfect for fans of Mr Gum and Horrid Henry, and is highly illustrated for reluctant readers.
