Synopsis

Synopsis

Hooey Higgins and friends are back for another hilarious madcap adventure — this time, their dubious inventive skills are put to the test.

Have you ever found yourself in a slightly risky situation and thought, What I really need is a pair of super-protective trousers to keep me safe from crocodiles, flying toffee apples, and log-flume malfunctions? Head for Shrimpton-on-Sea, where Hooey, Will, and Twig are working on an ingenious contraption sure to make the world a safer place: the all-new Tremendous Trousers, aka TremTrows! All you do is slip on a pair of yellow sweatpants, stuff them full of bubble wrap, add some soda bottles topped with balloons, and inflate them with gas from a bunch of mints dropped into the soda. What could possibly go wrong? It’s a brilliant invention guaranteed to win the class prize — tickets to the carnival! Shweet!
Praise

Praise

Lots of laughs and hijinks make this fast-paced series great for readers with a sophisticated funny bone.
—Kirkus Reviews

Students who like their characters less than perfect will appreciate this British import. The illustrator has expertly displayed their silliness with his simple, childlike designs, reminiscent of a simplified Quentin Blake. ... [E]xcellent drawings and ... moments of laugh-out-loud situational humor.
