About the book
The Hercules' Hopefuls are going to the Nationals, and not even the fact that Wallace's Winners are competing too can wipe the smiles off their faces. But then in training, disaster strikes. To stand a chance of beating the Velociraptors (the terrifying all-girls speed squad), Wesley and Fergus will need to work together.

Written with award-winning author Joanna Nadin, with fantastic illustrations from Clare Elsom, this book is suitable for children aged five to seven.
