Meet Hooey Higgins — along with his oddball family and friends — in a laugh-out-loud madcap adventure loaded with boy appeal.
Hooey Higgins is desperately in love — with the humongous chocolate egg in Mr. Danson’s store window, that is. Too bad he and his best friend, Twig, have nowhere near enough money to buy it. But when a shark is spotted off the coast, Hooey and Twig dream up a plan: capture the shark and charge people to view it. Brilliant! With Hooey’s older brother masterminding the foolproof scheme, they set off with ketchup, a cricket bat, a floral quilt, and a rope in tow. What they find is so amazing it blows the shark plan out of the water! Aided by Emma Dodson’s comical illustrations, Steve Voake introduces a hilarious new character in a fast-paced story kids will sink their teeth into.
Emma Dodson studied illustration at the University of Westminster in England.

Some of the more peculiar movie props she was called upon to make included a baboon's bottom, inflatable souffl(c)s, and exploding chewing gum. In addition to writing and illustrating children's books, Emma currently teaches Illustration and Animation as a visiting lecturer at University of Westminster. She lives in Surrey, England.
