Johnny Maverick a une idée géniale pour permettre à l'équipe des Loups gris à Gaston de remporter le concours de collecte de fonds auquel elle participe. Tout se passe pour le mieux jusqu'au moment où une visiteuse arrive à Howling et qu'elle se met à remporter tous les défis contre Johnny. Toute la ville trouve cela très drôle, mais le pire, c'est que même ses amis Tom et Stu s'amusent à ses dépens!

Johnny Maverick has come up with an idea to win a fundraising contest for the Howling Timberwolves hockey team. It seems fun, until a girl visits Howling—and starts to win challenges against Johnny. The entire town finds it funny; even worse, his friends Tom and Stu like what's happening.

"Full of humour and has a surprise ending which will delight young readers. The illustrations of Dean Griffith add to the enjoyment...This will also help some readers with comprehension of the plot. Hockey, practical jokes, boy/girl rivalry--this book has them all and, as well, teaches an important lesson about learning to be a good sport."
