Pete is special - he can fly! All he has to do is run, jump, and - off he goes! Will he be able to win at the Olympics without giving his secret away? Ever since Pete was a child he's known he was different - he can fly! Now, at only 13 years old, Pete has qualified for the Olympics to compete in the triple jump. And Edgar Winter, Pete's competition, is determined not to lose against someone so young - no matter what it takes. But Pete's sure to win the gold - that is, if his nerves, and Edgar, don't get the best of him! A delightfully well-crafted story with an Olympic theme. With a reading age of 8+, it is particularly suitable for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic readers.
