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?

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.

My son is in second grade and has just discovered the joy of reading. The Black Lagoon series holds his interest and we usually read a book in one sitting because he wants to find out what happens next!
My son begged me to buy him this series of books for Christmas. I jumped on it but found it difficult to find. Barnes and Noble ordered for us. He was so happy!!!!
