Johnny Whistler and the Madcap Cricket Match

What this story is about
(Fourth book in the Johnny Whistler series)

Johnny Whistler’s town of Bayside has been challenged to a cricket match by its bigger rival, Ridgewood. Bayside doesn’t even have a cricket team, but this is a sporting emergency, and everyone’s dragged in to help fight off the under-handed challenge.

Johnny’s keen to play, as are his three giant, rubbery spiders, Sunshine, Rainbow, and Sky. But his sister, Debbie, and best friend, Bouncer, have a few problems. So does Johnny’s mother, Kate. And a visiting American cowboy has his own ideas about how cricket should be played.

Johnny and the ill-prepared Bayside team will need all the help they can get because Johnny’s old enemy, Herbert Hatfield, is determined Ridgewood will win. He’s also one of the umpires, and an expert at cheating.

In a thrilling, see-sawing, action-packed cricket match, it all comes down to the last ball.
