It is the first day of school. The first day of third grade. Between Mrs. Mousetrap's miserable spelling tests and the arm-twisting antics of smelly, candy-sucking Richard Newton, it's already looking ugly.

Then comes recess--and Ramon: The World Yo-yo Champion appears with his awesome King Tut Royal Egyptian Yo-yo. Even Richard Newton is in awe.

With bobbing, humming, sparkling speed, Daniel Pinkwater and Jack E. Davis draw us into a dizzyingly satisfying tale of yo-yo success.
