Barry and Colin were competing in the archery contest, but nobody else even wanted to watch. You bring a fishing pole?. Tony asked him. Riley shook his head. You can use one of mine. Riley’s face brightened. Nobody’d asked him to go fishing the whole time he’d been at camp. Grab the tackle box, Tony said.

My ten year old son read this book cover to cover in 2 days. He couldn't put it down and he said it's the best book he's ever written. He liked the characters, the plot and I loved how he didn't want to stop reading. Thanks Mr. Wallace for writing a great book.

Review: Sports camp like any other camp has all the usual "campy" elements....mosquitoes, cabins, a mess hall with questionable food, practical jokes, a bully and of course the obligatory scary stories. The scariest of all? An evil foot-chomping snapping turtle called Big Joe.

Chock full of sporty competitive moments where the underdog is doing his best to win. I like the realism though in that Riley has his share of wins and losses but keeps his determination. This is a great book for kid who likes to read about sports and the build up to the big game or final showdown.

The story is well paced and has enough sporty suspense to keep readers wanting more. Best suited for grades 3 to 7.
