Lord Commander Horatio Frederick Wallington Nincompoop Maximus Pimpleberry the Third (or Horace, for short) has been a statue on a plinth in Princes Park for hundreds of years.
But now he's friends with Harriet and every time he leaves his pedestal he's ready for all sorts of adventures.
It's the day of the Sports Spectacular and once Harriet, Fraser, and Megan convince Horace that his park isn't being invaded, he soon gets into the spirit of the games.
But will hiswinning streak land Horace in trouble, especially when crafty Coach Whipston wants a share of his success? Packed with splendiferous pictures this is a rollicking read for children of five and up.
