About This Book
A Fun-Filled Story of Friendship, Fierce Rivalries, and One Legendary Snapping Turtle!
Realistic characters, exciting action, and touches of humor bring the highs and lows of sports and summer camp to life!
As one of the youngest and smallest kids at sports camp, it's hard for Riley to fit in. He's not very good at sports like basketball and softball, and he doesn't want to ruin things for his bunkmates as they compete for the Camp Olympia Trophy, especially since they're finally starting to befriend him. Riley is good at swimming, however, and he's counting on bringing in major trophy points in the final mile-long swim across the lake, until he spots Big Joe, the giant vicious snapping turtle of camp lore!
