Featured Book of the Month – August 2014

 

The Gollywhopper Games by Jody Feldman

 

“Combine the contest and puzzle elements of the TV show The Amazing

Race, Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Ellen Raskin’s

The Westing Game. Then, add a young man’s desire to defend his father,

and you’ve got Feldman’s enjoyable debut novel. 12-year-old Gil Goodson’s

father worked for the Golly Toy and Game Company but was fired after being

investigated for (and acquitted of) embezzling funds. Gil is determined not only

to win the Gollywhopper Games grand prize (cash, a college scholarship, and

all sorts of Golly toys and games) but also to clear his father’s name. Feldman

includes truly despicable villains, unexpected kindnesses, and a surprise

ending. Nonstop action, appealing pencil illustrations, and increasingly

difficult brainteasers will keep readers engaged.” —Booklist Reviews
