Josh Ladd becomes an unwilling paddler when King Kong, the local bully, challenges neighbor boys to a Hawaiian outrigger canoe race. Josh and the other boys play by the rules, but not Kong. The unexpected results involve being caught in a monstrous storm at sea, a sinking canoe, a dramatic rescue and a lesson about the difference between winning and how you play the game.
The Ladd Family series is a Christian-based adventure series enjoyed by youth ages 8 to 12. The action-packed adventures are ideal for boys and reluctant readers. Includes a glossary of words for vocabulary development.
