Games galore! This time it is Great Insect Games. Ambrose is determined to win a shiny gold medal. He has practiced a lot but will he ever be able to beat the others? The first event is the Long Jump. Ambrose tries but the grasshopper can jump a lot further than anyone else. Ambrose isn't any more successful in the running race or the bug eating race. But, at last, when all hope is fading, Ambrose finds he can be best of all!

Synopsis

Ambrose Goes For Gold by Tor Freeman

Three cheers for Ambrose! It's the day of the Great Insect Games and Ambrose is desperate to win a gold medal - he's been practising very hard! But when the grasshopper jumps further and the pond skater skates faster, it looks as though Ambrose will never win anything... But with a little determination and the help of his friends, Ambrose soon discovers that everyone is good at something.
