To twelve-year-old Gil Goodsonís delight, out of 4,500 kids standing in line when the gate to the Golly Toy and Game Company opens, he miraculously manages to be one of the few selected to get into the Gollywhopper Games Competition. The winner of the Gollywhopper Games will receive cash, a college scholarship, and all sorts of Golly toys and games. The main reason Gil wants to win, however, is to clear his fatherís name. His father, a former employee of the Golly Toy Company was wrongly accused of embezzlement. Follow along with him as he desperately tries to solve the increasingly difficult brainteasers and puzzles, traveling through the maze of games to the finish. Have fun figuring out all of the challenging Golly Whopper brainteasers along the way too. Read to find out how this suspenseful game ends.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards Program, 2009-2010)
