Another fun chapter book about field day and sports from the dynamic duo of Mike Thaler and Jared Lee - just in time for summer!

There's just one week until field day at the Black Lagoon and Hubie is going to be ready!
But getting in shape in one week is harder than he thinks -- especially when the workout kit he has seems to be for chickens. Why else would he be developing his pecs and thighs?
When the two teams finally meet on the big day, there's more than winning at stake. Will their friendships survive the cut-throat water balloon tosses and three-legged races that await them?

About the author (2008)

Mike Thaler was born in Los Angeles in 1936. After moving to New York City, he started his professional career drawing cartoons for adults in 1960. A children's book editor saw one of these cartoons and encouraged Mike to write for children. Since then, Mike has written over 140 children’s books and has become known as America’s "Riddle King.” Mike says that writing and riddles are a powerful way to stimulate a child’s interest in learning and creating. He is an award-winning author and illustrator and has been called "one of the most creative people in children’s literature.” Mike currently lives in Canby, Oregon.

Jared Lee has illustrated more than 100 books for young readers.
