Fans of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will love this book, as will puzzle and mystery fans. Gil has been studying for months in hopes of competing and winning the Gollywhopper Games, a competition sponsored by Golly Games, the company where his dad used to work. Gil knows his father was not an industrial spy and had not stolen ideas from the company to sell to its competitors, but his life has not been easy since his father was accused and lost his job. Winning the Gollywhopper Games will give the family the money they need to relocate to another town, a town where Gil won't have to face taunting bullies. The games prove to be a challenge, and the cheating by other contestants makes Gil even more worried about whether or not he can win. Readers will enjoy solving the puzzles along with Gil and will root for him all the way!
