Hooey Higgins is in love– with the massive chocolate egg in Mr. Danson’s shop window, that is. But he and his best friend, Twig, have nowhere near the money they need to buy it. Then a shark is spotted off the coast of Shrimpton-on-Sea, and Hooey and Twig come up with the perfect idea: capture the shark and change people to view it. Brilliant! With Will, Hooey’s older brother, in charge of their foolproof plan to lure the shark to shore, the three set off, equipped with ketchup, a cricket, bat, and some rope. What they find, however, is something so amazing that it will blow the shark plan right out of the water!
Steve Voake introduces Hooey Higgins and his hilarious adventures with his friends and family. With Emma Dodson’s lively illustrations, readers will discover that there’s never a dull moment in this English seaside town!
