When Hooey Higgins sees an enormous chocolate egg in the display window of the local chocolatier, he is desperate to taste the sweet and dreams up a plan to raise the money to buy it. Working with his brother Will and friend Twig, he goes in search of a shark that he plans to display in the bathtub for an admission fee. There is no shark to be found, but when Hooey spots an enormous sea urchin, he can see the money mounting up and his chances for having that chocolate egg increasing. But an encounter with a bully leads to a chase through a women's underclothing store and much mayhem while the sea urchin turns out not to be what Hooey thought it was, after all. With a cast of friends, a toast-loving dog named Dingbat and zany family members in this small town called Shrimpton-on-Sea, the author has much material from which to drawn for future stories. I particularly enjoyed the ink line and wash illustrations that show clearly the antics of Hooey and friends.
