Jimmy Cook is finding History Week a bit boring until Ms Fennel starts banging on about Captain Cook.

Then bingo! Turns out he and Captain Cook have a lot in common. Here are three of the big ones: they are both named James Cook; they are both great explorers; and they both look great in a tricorn hat. Funny fiction for those who love Tom Gates and Timmy Failure.

Jimmy Cook has discovered that he has quite a lot in common with the explorer Captain James Cook. No doubt they were related. So when he finds out that Captain Cook met with a sticky end in Hawaii, he's determined to travel to the island finish what he started.

His parents aren't so interested but luckily Jimmy's favourite brand of cereal is running a competition. First prize: an Hawaiian Holiday.

Jimmy is going to have to eat a lot of full-fibre Wheetblocks to enter, but big dreams come with a big price. And no price is too big when it comes to Captain James Cook especially if it means beating the world's most annoying person, Alice Toolie.
